Shy Girls Trades Brooding Bedroom Pop for Blissed-Out R&B on His New Album
The album offers a different side of Vidmar’s emotional and sonic sensibilities. His sound is still rooted in R&B, but it’s warmer and more fleshed out this time around. Album opener “Drain” is chill, subtle, pleasant and loosely neo-soul. The song’s slinky bass beat drops sensuality into the flow of the album from its first jump. Then, Bird on the Wing slides into “Hallelujah,” which sounds like the classic Maxwell track “Ascension,” especially Vidmar’s vocal foray toward the end.
