Baytrees Premieres, Disarmingly Seductive Synth-Soul Jam “Lover” James Keith

Brixton four-piece Baytrees have been bubbling away for a few years now and each passing release seems to distill their sound to something even purer. With a keen ear trained to classics from ‘70s and ‘80s funk and soul—with touches of hip-hop and one or two other influences, their music is simultaneously nostalgic and timeless. With their new single “Lover” we’ve got the clearest example of that, pairing delicate synth brush strokes with lead singer Mensah Hart’s impossibly nimble falsetto vocals that charm and seduce without being lurid.

Alongside the track, they’ve also put out a set of visuals that hit the overall vibe of the track perfectly. For the most part, it’s a scrapbook of intimate scenes of lovers wrapped up in each other, which they then mix with a few silhouette shots of the band jamming together to cap it all off.

Speaking more about the track, Mensah Hart says: “Inspired by Prince, Marvin Gaye, Bootsy Collins and ‘90s hip-hop, ‘Lover’ is all about the funk with soulful harmonies, guitar riffs and a seriously funky bassline. We want ‘Lover’ to make people dance, and to be something people can hear on a night out and sing to each other and ultimately connect over.”
