There is something in the French water that just breeds sick producers and creative folks, case in point Clarens. The Parisian native has just put out a cracker new single Pray under the watchful eye of producer Yuksek. 

The story goes that Yuksek discovered a young Ousseynou Cissé while he was touring with another electro/pop outfit. Yuksek then took him under his wing (read: record label) and magic ensued.

Fast forward to the present and Clarens has now released two singles; Trust and now Pray through PartyFine Records both produced by Yuksek. Play is a funky little and slightly whimsical electro-pop number laced in some woeful RnB a sound that is very much in tune with its back story. Pray takes its inspiration from the then 18 year old Clarens as he moves a few thousand kilometres from home packing lofty musical ambitions and not much else. The overall sound is a comforting sound somewhat akin to putting on a brand new pair of socks.

While the whole thing reads like a fairy tale it really isn’t. Clarens is just one talented guy that knows his way around a synthesiser. Cannot wait for more.
