L.A. singer, Gallant, isn’t being subtle about using his music to try to throw us back to the 80s and 90s.  On his recent R&B single, “Manhattan,” Gallant sings of tape decks and VCRs, but there’s little else that is a throwback.  Every component of the song, whether it’s the guitars or his voice, is incredibly soft, and other than a handclap, there is no percussion.  This is modern R&B at its finest, shedding itself of the overwhelming need to be groove-heavy or bass-blasting to evoke the need to dance.  “Manhattan” is perfect for the times when you’re just…existing.  Enjoy.
