This Friday sees the release of Extended Plea, the much anticipated debut EP from the hotly-tipped, Toulouse. Before that however, the Nigerian-born, New York-based artist has treated us to an early taste of what to expect by sharing fantastic new single, Hear & Now.

A slice of contemporary, electronic soulHere & Now finds him in a confessional mood, baring his soul from the track’s opening lines until its last. It’s an engrossing effort, one that introduces us to a new, more playful side of Toulouse, and will only increase the excitement surrounding his forthcoming EP.

For now though, listen to Here & Now below and find more from Toulouse on the Mahogany Blog playlist on Spotify.
