SILK SONIC (essentially the pairing of Bruno Mars and Anderson.Paak) have just released a new single – sonically, a sweet and lovely 70s harmony vocal group, pastiche, ‘Smokin’ Out The Window’. Lyrically, however, in the days of “me too” and the whole debate about domestic abuse, many might find the lyrics distasteful, misogynistic, even.
Musically and visually, Silk Sonic have captured a moment in time. The Silk Sonic team deliver in a way that pays homage to groups like The Temptations, the Whispers, Blue Magic and The Spinners – indeed that whole wonderful vocal group era. However, you may just baulk at the lyrics… classic soul, they certainly ain’t. However, make up your own mind!
We believe that ‘Smokin’ Out The Window’ is from Silk Sonic’s upcoming album ‘An Evening with Silk Sonic’.
