This blend of neo-soul & jazz might be my favorite from the soul/r&b realm.

All is thanks to Canadian talents, jazz band hard.times & singer Lady Phyl who Ivo featured on "High With Me" 2 years ago. They got together again for "YRU So Confusing" - a song about recognizing your self-worth in a toxic relationship. 5:36 min of pure awesomeness.

Kicking off similarly to Hiatus Kaiyote, then adding lush r&b-esque vocals, all topped up with subtle strings & slick guitars, and delicate, yet intriguing composition switches - this is absolutely next level.

I absolutely love what they said about it: "The track has the energy of soaking in a bubble bath, a bottomless bottle of red wine; incense burning".
