5 Modern Soul Singles to Help You Mellow

Kelsy Karter

“Out of Drugs”

Kelsy Karter adds a modern lyrical spin to her Modern Soul sound on her smokey new single, “Out of Drugs”. Karter’s voice is fueled by emotional energy as she asks the question, “Will you still love me when I’m all out of drugs?” Honestly, it’s really more of a metaphor… I think. This is the debut single from Kelsy Karter and, I must say, this is quite the promising start. This is definitely an artist to keep an eye on. Check out “Out of Drugs” below…

 Ezra Jordan

“Only Got Eyes for Her”

This summer single from Toronto’s Ezra Jordan will warm you through the autumnal chill. “Only Got Eyes for Her” fuses contemporary soul and pop for a fresh sound that is equal parts smoldering and uplifting. This is the second single from Jordan and, after a pretty stellar Spotify showing for his debut track, we’re expecting good things for this artist. Follow Ezra Jordan on Spotify to keep watch for new singles, but you can start with “Only Got Eyes for Her” below…


“Fallin’ Apart”

Kenyan musician Xenia creates atmospheric Neo-Soul to soothe your spirit, even in the face of heartbreak. “Fallin’ Apart” is a love song that deals with the aftermath of love’s failings. With a minimal approach on the instrumental end, Xenia’s own voice finds space for the emotional meanderings that give the single its amorphous shape. Zen out with Xenia on her new single “Fallin’ Apart” below…

Stelle Amor

“Bring It Back (What Feels Right)”

The Southern songbird has a smoldering bluesy sound that might have you placing her origin a bit further north… like mabye Chi-Town or Motown. This “soulful siren” just might nestle into that hole left in your heart by Amy Winehouse with her new single, “Bring It Back (What Feels Right)”, but without self-destructive, and ultimately terminal, edginess. Check out the new single from Stelle Amor below…

Van Bobbi

“Cruel Intentions”

Van Bobbi puts a pop spin on his contemporary R&B sound for something a little more West Coast than Motown. His slinky new single, “Cruel Intentions”,  tosses down a make out vibe with a soulful slant. The new track diverges somewhat from the more indie-electro tracks you’ll find in Van Bobbi’s Soundcloud collection, but fans of “Cruel Intentions” should delve further into the online offerings.
