Immerse yourself in London RnB artist Rasharn Powell’s silky smooth newest release, ‘Blunder’, 2 and a half minutes of atmospheric bass, and emotional vocals that can paint both of either a state of peaceful tranquility, or emotional reflection.
Emerging renaissance RnB artist, Rasharn Powell is back with “Blunder”, his first release this year following December’s “Smithereens”. Since his first single “Warm In These Blue Jeans”, Powell has built up quite the reputation for his subtle blend of genres, combining his overarching RnB sound with hints of Alternative Hip Hop and a healthy dose of soul. Although “Blunder” does lack the deep funky undertones of his debut single, it swaps out the groovy bass and opts for a more reflective piece, with the theme of the track revolving around breakups and his experience with women. For a track that intends to be thought provoking and reflective, it doesn’t quite hit that mark, with the repetition throughout the track not really offering quite enough insight. However, the overall instrumentation of the track definitely gives off this feeling, creating a tone on par with the philosophical experience of walking through an open meadow looking up at the pink clouds at sunset.
Rasharn Powell has also provided some impressive visuals alongside the track. Shot through a fisheye lens by The Reids (Kam-bu), we see Powell strutting about his living room in his sweatpants, switching between light and dark, representing the singers conflicting thoughts.
Rasharn Powell is set to drop his mixtape “Dusk & Dawn” in July, with this first single essentially serving as a promising indication of what’s to come, with the hop of more fleshed-out songs in the mix.
