Catherine A. O'Toole's Music Recommendation
Bakar is an artist and musician living and working in London, England. I tripped over his music early on in the pandemic and it was exactly what I needed and continues to be. He released this EP, Will You Be My Yellow? in September of 2019.
The six tracks lull and awaken: Yllw is longing for love, Hell N’ Back is an invitation to love, Ghosts is lyrical missteps, Stop Selling Her Drugs features the remarkable Dominic Fike, Been a Minute and Cashmere Tears leave you wanting more so go ahead, breathe deeply, it’s been a long time since you’ve felt this relaxed. Then hit replay.
Musicians need to eat, please purchase if you can afford to.
