Michael Blume - 'When I Get It Right' (EP stream) (premiere)

Michael Blume’s percussive pop is a listener’s dream, everything perfectly polished and all elements in their proper places.

Michael Blume’s percussive pop is a listener’s dream, everything perfectly polished and all elements in their proper places. When I Get It Right is part Flume’s processed, pop-savvy electronic, part Sam Smith’s pained gospel falsetto, part James Blake’s soul-flavored downtempo. It’s equally comfortable at higher speeds as lower, bouncing between Casio-heavy blue-eyed soul and upbeat R&B. If When I Get It Right is any indication, Michael Blume’s career can only go up from here — this is a seriously impressive debut.

When I Get It Right reflects some of the experiences and observations I've had during my first two years in New York City,” says Blume. “It touches on topics that I think are often left untouched – spoiled relationships, the inequalities of love, the glory of loving oneself, the disappointment of seeing oneself fail. I aimed to put my real feelings - successes and shortcomings - into the EP and, as my debut project, I am proud to share these songs, sounds, and emotions.”

When I Get It Right releases this Friday, July 29. Until then, stream the whole thing below.
