The moment I saw the names 'Louk' and 'Ben Beal', I was giddy with delight before I even hit play. "Without You" is one hell of a soulful listening experienced that's seeped in a heavy jazzy influence.

With her presence, vocalist Sophie Marks really accentuates the soulful nature of "Without You" as the sound of her voice enters the mix like a warm breeze of fresh air into a chilled room. It's Ben's flows that are bound to grab your attention too, especially in the second verse when he smoothly meanders around beautifully arranged keys underpinned by a relaxing drum groove.
