Boulevards Wants the Golden Days of Funk on “Sanity”
His self-titled debut EP drops September 25
Boulevards, a.k.a. Jamil Rashad, remembers a time when groovy bass lines, twinkling guitar riffs, and lycra bell bottoms (not, say, EDM bangers) were the signifiers of American and European club scenes. Now, like musical peers Escort and Midnight Magic, the Raleigh, North Carolina native is looking to bring it all back with “Sanity.” The second single off of his eponymous debut EP — we’ve already heard “Got to Go” — is a head-bopping, neo-funk jam; a sonic time machine to a supa-fly ’70s dance party.
Listen “Sanity” and check out Boulevards’ debut EP on September 25.
