“Acoustic” isn’t the first word that comes to mind when I think of the dance-inducing, effects-laden track “Stare Into The Sun” by UK duo Graffiti6. However, after watching vocalist/songwriter Jamie Scott perform the song “1 Mic, 1 Camera, 1 Take”-style as part of a Vevo exclusive video, I think he and producer TommyD could eschew the electronics altogether, and I’d love their music just as much.
Scott’s soulful voice really stands out when you strip away all the production, and he’s easy enough on the eyes that you don’t need fancy edits to keep the video interesting. Give it a view (or two or three) below, and see if you agree:
If you haven’t already, check out Monica’s review of the duo’s performance with Fitz and the Tantrums back in July. That’s one show I’m super jealous I didn’t get to see, but thankfully Graffiti6 will be back in LA in a couple of weeks for a show at Hotel Cafe, and you can pick up your tickets now.
