Raury - 'All We Need'

8/10

Ever since emerging in the latter half of last year with his mixtape 'Indigo Child', teenage singer/rapper Raury has been one of the hottest talents to emerge throughout 2015. Now after a number of small single releases, the Atlanta-based frontman has delivered his debut album 'All We Need', and from just a few listens, it is clear to see that this young man is hardly another passing talent.

Mixing a whole range of influences including hip-hop, soul and RnB, 'All We Need' aims to highlight a level of social commentary that only the likes of Kendrick Lamar has been able to enunciate so far this year. Creating a backdrop of simple rhythms and beautifully constructed melodies, the album's production sits firmly in the back of this record, allowing the frontman to really be heard as he embarks to deliver his frustrations and commendations of modern culture and society.

For someone who has yet to turn 20-years-old, he seems to show a great deal of maturity, both within his sound and lyrical content. It is clear that we are seeing the beginning of a truly great and adventurous artist who certainly has a lot more to give.
