R&B artist Berhana returns with the second single from his upcoming debut LP, “Lucky Strike,” out today (September 10). It’s a soul-infused trip, combining the heart of Frank Ocean‘s lyrics with the echoey, psychedelic sound of Tame Impala — artists Berhana has previously drawn comparisons to.
Layered with electric bass and drums, the song is as sonically complex as its storyline, which details a love affair gone awry: “Knocking at my door/She said she wanted more/No I’m not your type/You’re my Lucky Strike.”
Following the Aug. 20 release of Berhana’s “Health Food,” “Lucky Strike” is another team-up from Berhana and Canadian producer and multi-instrumentalist Pomo (Anderson .Paak, Mac Miller). Berhana’s music has previously been featured on Atlanta.
