As a relative newcomer still, Brayton Bowman knows how to showcase his talents by creating just fucking-good music. Following on from his debut Skin Deep from earlier in the year, the NYC-based artist has shared Real, the second cut from his upcoming The Update EP.

Teaming up once again with MNEK (who produced the track’s aforementioned predecessor), Real also sees additional co-writing duties with Stagedoor FM-regular Ryan Ashley (MNEK and Bowman are amongst the other credits), whilst the song itself is a proper head-nodder, with Brayton throwing his vocals across a zany drum-heavy pop-beat (credit to Blonde’s Jake Manson on the production for that one!). With stuff like this in the locker, The Update is starting to become more and more appealing.
