R&B singer-songwriter Steven A. Clark broke onto the scene in 2010 with his soul-baring and darkly arranged eight-song LP debut STRIPES, which earned him the title of “Miami’s best independent album of 2011” by local hip hop site The305.com, but it’s with his upcoming project, Fornication Under the Consent of the King that his artistry reaches new heights.

Alongside Frank Ocean and The Weeknd, the Fayetville, North Carolina native is a top forerunner in the Future RnB movement, spearheading a confident and new type of indie-rock and hip hop infused rhythm and blues that belies their young age. Wearing his heart on his sleeve, Clark’s songwriting reflects his absolute acceptance of the effects of love, including the adoration and despise, bliss and pain, and drinking and drugs.

…Clark is adding some needed seasoning to R&B, handling his own production, songwriting and recording. Like his peers, the musical artisan croons gut-busting lyrics about his personal life. But it’s his artistry that’s more vast, incorporating rap, R&B and funk into his skin-burrowing confections. via

We came across this chillwave-y RNB track and thought it would be a good song to set to Armageddon. It’s by Steven A. Clark, an artist from Fayetteville, North Carolina and based in NYC and Miami. Clark is definitely one to watch out for. Stream the single below, download it and then do the same with his two albums below in their entirety. Fornication Under Consent of the King (F. U. C. K.), which Seashore comes off of, and 2011’s Stripes.
