AUGUST 08 is an fresh artist from the 88rising camp that also includes Rich Brian and Rina Sawayama.
He released Funeral earlier in the year and also featured on Brian’s album but his latest track Lately has solidified his place as one of the best new artists of the year so far.
Lately is a hazy R&B song that’ll get you in your feelings. It moves at a beautifully slow pace but captures you immediately with the immediately strong vocals.
There’s so much of this moody R&B going around right now. Songs like this make it really easy to figure out what’s exciting and what’s not.
