It took me precisely 25 seconds to fall in love with the synth-beat-vocal ramblings of Kevin Garrett.

The Pittsburgh-born singer released his debut EP Mellow Drama a couple of months ago - and its a gem. "Coloring" previously released as a standalone (& debut) single leads the 5 track EP and although it is indeed the standout track, the EP in general is consistent in its quality.

Kevin Garrett is certainly going to draw comparisons to the likes of "James Blake", but then again this can't be a bad thing - and the comparison to artists of Blake's ilk are definitely not without merit.

If you like "Coloring" as much as me, pick up a copy of "Mellow Drama" and just let it wash over you.
