“You never know quite what’s around the next corner or the next chord change when you take a sonic trip with Sargeant X Comrade. Yolanda Sargeant’s rich, smoky vocals – playful or melancholy, joyful or pensive – come in over top of a fresh and unexpected mixture of elements in each song. Sometimes it’s ‘40s swing piano riffs tinkling over a languid hip hop beat. Sometimes it’s haunting flamenco guitar mixed with reggae styles blended with soulful trip hop. Always, it’s distinctive and fascinating. Always, you can bet on it to draw you in.
Sargeant’s vocal style infuses inspirations like Billie Holiday, Nina Simone and Erykah Badu into a style entirely her own. It comes together with the sonic architecture of producer Evgeniy a.k.a. Comrade a.k.a. White Russian Production, to form a sound that is exciting and challenging, featuring unexpected and captivating juxtapositions of elements and genres.”
