DOWNLOAD: Theo Martins “Sincerely Yours, The Dance Floor”
Theo Martins is one of my favorite new artists. He reeled me in with his You Can’t Do That On Television EP last year, which was full of insightful, deft lyrics, along with thoroughly engaging beats (see: “The Monocle“).
Rather than re-tread ground he already covered, on his new project, Sincerely Yours, The Dance Floor, Theo infuses 80’s Pop, electro and dubstep elements into his sound. Normally this would be where a new act loses my interest because their direction reeks of pandering to a new audience for a buck.
But from just an initial listen it’s clear that Theo is a lover of music that is genuinely and sincerely putting his own spin on these grooves (he rhymes over Cher. Yep.). Also, the sartorially inclined brother’s willingness to go out on the limb and try his hand at genres that I assume aren’t necessarily in his comfort zone is commendable.
Then their is the fact that music is excellent, which is always a bonus.
