Before Love Came to Kill Us

· by Jean Bourbeau

Since the release of her single “Figures” at the end of 2016, the Colombian-born, Toronto-based artist has distinguished herself as a committed multidisciplinary artist with numerous high-level collaborations (Calvin Harris, Sam Smith, 6lack, Eminem). An integral part of the new generation of artists coming from a hip and unabashed Brampton, Reyez brilliantly delivers Before Love Came to Kill Us, a very first album after two award-winning EPs and many prestigious nominations.

Lascivious pop-soul with hints of Latin and trap flavour, his music is distinguished by a mature R&B approach with delicate arrangements. Like the album’s title, the lyrical essence is tinged with a recurring thanatos, magnified by a hoarse and nasal vocal signature. While Reyez has a predilection for the symptoms of expired love, she also tackles with panache topical subjects such as migratory struggles and women’s emancipation.

This painstaking effort unfolds over 14 tracks with an instinctive sensitivity which, in addition to confirming rumours of obvious charisma, reveals the conquering vulnerability of this young musician with a brilliant future.
