Stepping back into the spotlight following the debut success of his Just Kids mixtape, today Stevan returns with “Impress You” out via Astral People Recordings. Enlisting the production touch of LUCIANBLOMKAMP (6LACK, Mallrat) and joining forces with creative director Michael Dole (Flume, The Avalanches), Stevan’s new chapter plunges into his most open and intimate work to date, both in sound and substance.
“Impress You” kicks into pace with a tripping beat which signifies a new sonic direction, rooted in darker synth work and alt-R&B influences. Mirroring his maturation and versatility, the track sees Stevan refine his woozy, sun-sprinkled sound to bring rich, velvety vocals and introspective words to the front. The song sees him speak candidly on the pressures of pleasing others while journeying to find his truest self. Utterly transparent, this slick offering amplifies Stevan’s far-reaching acumen from dreamlike modes to complex, modern production that exists deep in a league of its own.
Stevan says on the single: "“Impress You" was one of the first tracks that I made with LUCIANBLOMKAMP. I speak on my experiences with overcoming social pressure and finding myself. It’s probably my most personal song to date.”
