Comprised of unforgettable lead singer Saidah Conrad and innovative rappers Beanz and 1990, Toronto three-piece Ain't No Love are familiar faces to us at EARMILK. Just over a month away from the release of their forthcoming EP, Plummet, available via Warner Music Group this March, the group have unveiled their latest offering, "Cry in the Rain".
Produced by fellow Torontonian Avenue, "Cry in the Rain" is a clear departure from Ain't No Love's previous work. Drawing on the producer's electro pop sound, the track uses driving progressions and a soulful, vocoded funk line.
Of the song, Avenue notes, "When I first started this track I thought it really nailed down a funk/soul vibe that I was searching for, but it wasn't enough. To my luck, Ain't No Love graced it with their powerful presence; what happened next was Cry in the Rain.”
