Distinctions Pitchfork: Best New Music
Here's some more narcotic, dimly lit R&B balladry from Drake's Warner-supported OVO Sound label, this time courtesy of duo dvsn, who were a bit coy about revealing their identities. Producer Paul Jefferies (aka Nineteen85, co-maker of "Hotline Bling") and primary vocalist Daniel Daley are credited as co-writers on each song, and they get occasional assistance from Adam Feeney (aka Frank Dukes), Majid Al Maskati (of labelmates Majid Jordan), and Stephen Kozmeniuk (who helped out on Kendrick Lamar's "The Blacker the Berry"). There are a few other accomplices, including some background vocalists who help make some of the material sound like some kind of intimate carnal gospel service, like on "Too Deep," as in "In...too...deep, don't wanna...pull out." Apart from the relatively lively pulse of the aching "Another One," everything plays out at slow-jam tempo, and the vocals often slip into falsetto mode with lapses in enunciation. The duo is at their most effective on finale "The Line," a bare, subtly churchified pleader. ~ Andy Kellman

Higher in profile than their quietly issued 2016 debut, dvsn's Morning After is also more collaborative, specifically for the small crew of producers who assist partners Daniel Daley and Nineteen85. Noah "40" Shebib either produces or co-produces three cuts, Maneesh Bidaye and Noel Cadastre each help out on two numbers, and Robin Hannibal is likely the one responsible for the slightly tropical-festive tone of the title track. These contributions don't pull the duo far from the downcast style of slow jams and ballads that characterized their debut. Daley directly addresses a lover from beginning to end, advising her in the opener to leave, begging her in the finale to stay, and between the two songs attesting to his prowess, sifting through apprehensions, and supplying a wide variety of sweet talk. (Dig, or don't, the contrast between "Nothin' turns me me on like a woman's perspective" and "Yeah, this is just the tip of it, tell me if you're feelin' it," utilized in the same song.) Compared to the debut, this has a little more definition. ~ Andy Kellman
