First making waves with a collection sultry slow jams on his debut EP “Don’t Disturb” in 2016, Brixton-born Fabian Secon has carved out his own name in the UK music scene over the past few years. Since following up with experimental project “Until We Meet Again” with 5ive Beatz in 2017, the 21-year-old singer-songwriter has been compiling a third, equally eclectic EP for us, which dropped today.
Over five tracks, “I See Things Others Can’t” explores themes of love and loss, identity and confidence, drawing on sounds from alternative R&B, hip hop, trap, punk, folk and pop-rock.
“Each song has its own personality and expression, ranging from uplifting emotions to depressing places and rebellion,” explains Fabian. “The EP’s title and concept revolve around the idea that sometimes I’m in my own world and only I can feel and visualise certain things around me. I always like to be one step ahead creatively and sonically too.”
“For this project, I wanted to push my own boundaries,” he continues, on the entirely self-written and self-produced record. “I created a more progressive sound with tracks like “Small”, which is very melodic and pop-R&B driven, while keeping a more familiar dark and eerie sound on others, such as “One More Day” [co-produced by Jacob Manson]. I wanted to show the growth and capabilities of what else I can do, but also pay homage to what has been successful for me previously.”
To celebrate, Fabian is performing his first headline show at Camden Assembly on 31 July, for which tickets are available here.
