If you’re not familiar with C.S. Armstrong, now would be a great time to get acquainted. Armstrong has released a three-track EP titled Chauncy. The eight-minute project is a short but satisfying groove from start to finish.
With the grit and soul of the R&B singers from the ‘60s and ‘70s, C.S. captures that evocative feeling in his unique way. Produced by J.LBS (Anderson.Paak, Jorja Smith) “Never Be the Same” is a time-warping mixture of southern funk with a Hip-Hop breakbeat and Blues guitar perfectly laid underneath. Reminiscing on the old days, Armstrong sings “Hold on to what you love / Before change takes it away / Hold on to what you love / It’ll never be the same.”
The EP serves as a brief taste to his upcoming album dropping next month on March 1, titled Truth Be Told. Speaking on the inspiration for Chauncy, Armstrong said, “I wanted to make sure that I paid tribute to everyone that inspired me. Lightnin Hopkins, Muddy waters, Clark sisters, etc. I wanted to touch on everything every time I record.”
