boston-based r&b newcomer johan provided a jolt to the new year with his debut single, “danger_us,” a minimal palette commanded by his deft, airy falsetto.  today he returns with the sultry, nocturnal “stard(us)t,” its title again stressing unity and its structure again leaning on that falsetto.  with a bit more support from chiming synths and surging chordal stabs this time around, “stard(us)t” shows a nuanced version of johan, one that can still deliver a bevy of emotions without tempo-based urgency driving him.  take a listen below.
