Gavin Turek – It’s the Light

This song has been on repeat for me a week or so now. Yeah yeah, everyone might have a little bit of tropical/disco house fatigue, but there’s an authenticity to this song. To me, she comes off as one who’s given a great homage to the disco/soul era rather than trying to grab onto the industry-directed “make it sound like disco” resurgence. Sort of the way Leon Bridges in his early days made everyone think Sam Cooke had come back to life. Combine that with Gavin’s sultry voice, the melody and rhythmic percussions, this track is a solid pop toe-tapper.

By all accounts, she’s a hell of a live performer, so I’m gonna be keeping an eye on her upcoming LP release, and her tour schedule… she’s one to watch.
