“Don’t You Love” – Lil Silva


It’s not quite the British Invasion of the 60’s but UK acts are still making waves in the states from The Arctic Monkeys and Charli XCX to Hudson Mohawke, James Blake, and SBTRKT. Lil Silva may soon be in the mix. The Bedford-born producer just released his EP, Mabel which brought him from behind the boards and into the spotlight as a vocalist as he continued to show off his brooding and immersive sound. On “Don’t You Love” Silva teams up with frequent collaborator Banks. Both singers gently croon over the wobbly bass as it slowly intensifies. Their voices and earnest but short lyrics make for an ambiguous emotive impact that can easily be labeled as contemporary RnB…or whatever you want to call it.
