Boston singer-songwriters Cehryl and Kwame met at Boston’s Berklee College of Music, where they both still attend. The two collaborated on a three-track EP over the summer, a handful of tight, tender, emotionally gripping love songs. Does This Make Sense is sleek, spare soul music in the fashion of James Blake, Nick Hakim (who also went to Berklee) and Sampha. Cehryl and Kwame have some serious chemistry. The EP’s production is cool, collected and slightly restrained, never bearing too much weight over Cehryl and Kwame’s vocals–the best moments on Does This Make Sense are when they meet in harmony. EP closer “Great World Spin” packs the meanest punch, an incredibly sexy trap lullaby for lovelorn hearts.
