Toronto multi-instrumentalist Ursa Major is off with a running start.
His debut single “Dusk” finds a clean balance between psychedelic, minimalist, and R&B. Finding a comfortable place in the ever-changing world of neo-soul and futuristic-R&B, Ursa Major combines dark tones and textures in his production. Stripped down to the basics, the melody of “Dusk” is masked by resonating bass lines, and Ursa Major’s clear vocal delivery.
In tandem with the gradually evolving sound of synthesizers, loops, and minimalist songwriting, Ursa Major is grabbing hold of the genre’s growing popularity.
