With a handful of singles, the rising, British neo-soul andhip-hop outfit Gotts Street Park — Josh Crocker (bass, production), Tom Henry (keys) and Joe Harris (guitar) have quickly amassed fans and acclaim from an impressive array of artists while working with Rejje Snow, Kali Uchis, Cosima, Yellow Days, Chester Watson, Celeste, Rosie Lowe, and a growing list of others.
Last year’s Diego EP, which featured a collection of compositions informed by the raw energy of being together and creating in the same room, served as a further introduction to the rising British trio.
Building upon a growing profile both nationally and internationally, the members of Gotts Street Park, along with Blue Flowers/[PIAS] shared their latest single, “Lost & Found,” a slow-burning and vibey bit of neo-soul featuring Charlotte Dos Santos’ self-assured and soulful vocal delivery, shimmering and reverb-drenched Rhodes and synths paired with a two-step inducing groove formed by a supple bass line and skittering boom bap.
“’Lost & Found’ is a song about falling in love and not being able to forget about a person. It’s about being in all shades of love,” Dos Santos explains in press notes.
Interestingly, the single, which was recorded between Leeds and New York, where Dos Santos was based at the time, can trace its origins back to when the Norwegian-born and currently Berlin-based singer/songwriter and the rising British outfit worked together on her most recent album.
“The instrumental track was from a batch of jams that were recorded during lockdown,” Gotts Street Park’s Josh Crocker explains. “Charlotte heard the instrumental whilst some of us were working with her on her record last year, we’d been looking for a way to collaborate and this one jumped out as being really well-suited to her.”
