In June, Dornik stunned me with his ”Something About You” – up until that point the most beautiful R&B debuts I’ve heard all year. Almost in time for this year’s résumés, “Rebound” – a decisively more upbeat, but equally smooth and luxurious ear-candy – reminds us all of his talents. Dornik possesses one of the silkiest vocals in contemporary R&B; one that click perfectly with the lush 80’s grooves that preserves confident nods towards Prince and the late King Of Pop.
If “Something About You” showed how to make an entrance, than “Rebound” should carry more than enough weight to put Dornik on our collective watch list for the year to come. PMR Records, the home of Jessie Ware and Disclosure, is getting ready to release his debut album, expected in early 2014.
