R&B ones to watch, Temptress have just released their new single ‘Right Here’, the last preview of their forthcoming EP ‘Body’. The South London-based duo have supported Rejjie Snow and received recognition from Clara Amfo, having previously performed at her ‘About’ showcase.
New single ‘Right Here’ is an ode to the ’90s influences that permeate Temptress’ sound: “It’s what we were surrounded with growing up. We’re particularly inspired by the beat driven song writing of ’90s R&B and hip-hop. With ‘Right Here’ we tried to create that feeling that a lot of great ’90s tracks have where the tone and vibe is immediately set out in the intro.”
Temptress write, produce and direct all their own material. In contrast to some of their more sultry tracks, ‘Right Here’ is a lo-fi R&B tune with a playfully reminiscent message to a heart-throb, and a skittish bassline in the chorus.
They continue: “‘Right Here’ is about an all or nothing moment in a relationship. When you’ve done everything you can, left all your cards on the table, and it’s up to the other person what happens next.”
