Spencer. "Hold It Down"

Spencer. has released his latest single “Hold It Down,” the track is out today via 4AD. The 20 year old combines R&B with his unique vocal style, hip-hop in his off-kilter beats. Spencer. writes, records and produces almost completely in isolation.

The artist from Rochester, NY, Spencer. credits the city’s rich and under-appreciated creative scene for fostering his growth as an artist. Dropping out of college in the summer of 2018 and relocating to Brooklyn, he gave himself a year to get his career off the ground. “My parents were understandably upset when I left school,”he says, “but I promised them I’d go back if things didn’t work out.” Less than twelve months later, he’d racked up millions of streams on Spotify with the singles ‘Want U Back’ and ‘To Be You’, garnered glowing reviews on both sides of the Atlantic, and signed a record deal. “I don’t think I’m going back,”he says with a laugh.
