Steven A. Clark – “Feel This Way”

Miami’s Steven A. Clark finds a way to make the present sound nostalgic. The R&B romantic’s new track “Feel This Way” captures this nocturnal summer essence with the hook “We’ll never feel this way again.” Produced by Boys Noize and Ape Drums, the song is charged and humid and club-ready, bridging the gap between Terence Trent D’arby and Frank Ocean.

And as long as we’re throwing out reference points: I don’t know if it’s “cool” to compare someone to John Mayer, but ever since his Deadhead stint, he excels at grooving guitar melodies that slide over you. Clark does the same. The beat oscillates, digging firmly into its pop tendencies as his voice buzzes with excitement. “Feel This Way” is not ready to let the sun rise just yet.

“Feel This Way” is off Clark’s upcoming sophomore album Where Neon Goes To Die — produced entirely by Boys Noize, featuring guest spots from Gavin Turek and Denzel Curry, and coming this fall via Secretly Canadian.
