Byron Releases ‘So Naive’

A gorgeous melody and a curiously warm, vulnerable vocal sit upon flighty, glitchy electronic instrumentals with flecks of East African guitar; a nod to Byron’s return to his native Uganda where he took traditional music lessons from Albert Ssempeke – one of the last royal Ugandan musicians playing traditional Baganda Music before the rise of Idi Amin who would outlaw it – now playing with the Owiny Sigma Band, signed to Brownswood Recordings.

This important background helps to understand what emerges with ‘So Naïve’ – a production and instrumental that compellingly mixes this legacy with experimental time signatures and soul music – a new iteration of the soul genre that Byron terms Noir Wave.
