The second record “Drown” is a testament to Connor’s wide array of styles. The production is experimental and takes elements from jazz, funk, soul, pop and techno music and it’s not easy to put in a box. The layered musical textures, energetic grooves and heartfelt songwriting blend seamlessly. The record talks about leaning on a higher power to help him out if the situation calls for it. The switch up at the middle part is welcome and gives the song a whole different feel and adds to the message delivered on the track.
