From the vocals to the instrumentation, it’s evident that Beharie possesses an old soul as he charms us with his retro-inspired brand of soul in “We Never Knew.”
If you weren’t previously aware, Norway has a new star of indie soul/R&B, and his name is Beharie. His latest single “We Never Knew” serves as a teaser for his much-anticipated debut album, Are You There, Boy? This single introduces listeners to themes revolving around connection and intimacy, and the warmth of the harmonies in the background enhances that feeling of comfort. The instrumental reminds us A LOT of the legendary Motown era of soul while the roaring guitar solo toward the end gives us a more modern flavor.
