Spoon and Bang – [Kyle Dion]

A few months ago Kyle Dion released the hypnotic-yet-nostalgic bop “Hazy”, a 2000’s R&B-adjacent anthem that saw our hero flourish alongside the undeniable Tkay Maidza. I didn’t know it at the time but “Hazy” would go on to enter my weekly rotation with nearly zero chance of leaving – but that changes this week. Kyle Dion has finally returned to us with the downtempo “Spoon and Bang”, a tender release that sees Kyle at his most candid and concentrated. For the uninitiated; Kyle Dion is blessed with a contemporary R&B voice touched by pristine pop polish and dulcet tones so soulful that “Spoon and Bang” is nothing if not an instant-add for your weekly rotation. Perhaps known best for his affinity for clever songwriting and palpable boy-next-door charm, “Spoon and Bang” features Kyle synthesizing both qualities on a track that is sure to satiate hungry fans until the next release (myself included).  Sporting a visualizer that amplifies the track’s simplistic bliss, don’t blame me if “Spoon and Bang” colonizes your summertime playlist after just one lisen. With a deluxe version of his 2021 LP SASSY coming fast down the pipeline, Kyle Dion is quickly making his mark on 2022.
