Brasstracks – Stay There

Brasstracks is back with a killer new song “Stay There”!

Few artists can catch a vibe & groove like Brasstracks can and I was hyped from the moment those first signature trumpet lines came in.

Xavier Omar’s vocals are so smooth on this track, flying through octaves and bluesy vocal lines with perfect control. Each verse has an undeniable energy that hooks you in, supported by call-and-response trumpet lines and a groove that follows Xavier through every rhythmic moment.

There’s an amazing awareness of dynamics in this track; the quiet sections feel like a mellow jam while the big moments have a gospel-like intensity (complete with vocal layers & organs).

“Stay There” is a reminder that Brasstracks is still on another level and only rising up from here!
