black a.m. returns in titillating fashion—stream ‘Please Don’t Go’
The Prodigy Artist-managed black a.m. is back to further embolden “New Music Friday” playlists with “Please Don’t Go.” The bassline- and guitar lick-led number, issued in both a standard and extended form, is executed in an effervescent instrumental fashion, such that the absence of a topline is almost unnoticeable and anything but a hindrance.
The buoyant package of G-house-leaning basslines and guitar texture arrives via Sinclair Wheeler as black a.m.’s second single of 2021, trailing March’s “T.S.O.F.H. (The Story of Frankie’s House).” “I’ve dug deeper than I even have in ‘Please Don’t Go.’ I wanted to address mental health through this song. ‘Please Don’t Go,’ is a plea, asking someone to stay, despite the issues that may arise through the relationship,” black a.m. mused at the time of the year opener’s release.
In the time since his 2020 debut, black a.m. has appeared at a sold-out edition of Insomniac’s Park ‘N Rave series at the NOS Events Center, nabbed his first residency—at Tempo Afterhours in Las Vegas—, and won early support from industry figureheads such as NGHTMRE, JOYRYDE, and SLANDER, with an additional nod coming from one of Dancing Astronaut’s Artists to Watch in 2021, John Summit.
