Henry Raker is an experimental saxophonist and clarinetist. His new track “You Know” displays an instrumental prowess that many musicians long to achieve.
Through a combination of metallic clicking and stirring saxophone work, the New York based artist has masterfully delivered a short, emotional track with an old school feel.
Raker’s vocal sound, which is reminiscent of Radiohead’s Thomas Yorke, is both alluring and haunting as it steers the track’s simple lyrics towards a deeper meaning.
