Album Review Cautious Clay - Deadpan Love

Cautious Clay - Deadpan Love

Soothing to the extreme, but still with enough variation not to lose attention, he’s on to a winner.

Rating:

Three years since the Cleveland, OH native’s buzzy internet breakthrough - debut track ‘Cold War’ quickly racked up a six-figure stream count - Cautious Clay’s debut full-length arrives. ‘Deadpan Love’ is by no means a misnomer, the collection a gentle, understated trip through influences from R&B (the shimmering ‘Whoa’), soul (the soaring ‘Roots’), and folky indie (the barely-there strumming of ‘Wildfire’). Soothing to the extreme, but still with enough variation not to lose attention, he’s on to a winner.
