New Music: Eddie Prové – „Obsession“

EddieProvebyIanWallman-5

The Reading-based singer-songwriter returns with a mature new soulful-pop ballad, co-written and produced by the acclaimed Rupert Christie on Aneko Music.

Eddie Prové’s ‘Obsession’ lays bare his wounded soul with a brutally honest tale of forbidden love. Blending introspective and emotive lyricism with delicate electronic production, swelling instrumentation and strong pop melodies suggest his influence of classic Motown and contemporary RnB – emphasised by its expert production.

In response to his well-received 2016 debut EP, there is a sense of fluency and awareness in his confidence to deliver such a bold pop single, suggesting his readiness to take his song-writing to the next level. As Prové continues to grow – his evolving sound mirrors this beautifully.

Renowned engineer Jason Cox  whose catalogue includes the likes of Blur, Gorillaz and Massive Attack – alongside Rupert Christie – producer and songwriter writer behind U2, Lou Reed, Coldplay and Green Day – marry their wealth of experience to capitalise on Prové’s talent in fluid, synchronic harmony in this latest effort.

Clash-approved Prové has numerously been championed by BBC Introducing since making his debut in May 2016 with the EP ‘Silent Love’, drawing comparisons to Sam Smith, Years & Years and Frank Ocean.

A classically trained vocalist and pianist of Belgian heritage, the 25-year old’s penchant for songwriting and natural performance ability shines through in this latest release. Prové’s musical roots lay deep – his mother, working in A&R for Motown’s UK publishers, often introduced a young Eddie to her signings – ultimately projecting a well-cultured taste and being instrumental in the soulful influence so evident in the body of his work.
