Deaton Chris Anthony is a Los Angeles-based producer, fashion designer, and R&B singer. He recently released the debut full-length. BO Y is out now as self-release. It features UMI, Clairo, Omar Apollo, Coco & Clair Clair. According to the press release, The narrative of the album is split into 2 parts, built of small vignettes and montages.
The album may sound like a perfect zeitgeist record – embracing idiosyncratic sounds via classic synth presets, electro beats, layered talkbox swells, and R&B backbones – but it’s the dark, angry, heart-wrenching twists and turns that give you a sense of awareness that each playful song surrounding is intentional, all giving balance to one another.
