More coastally-minded, timeless R&B is on the way from Montreal/Los Angeles artist Yoni Ayal, who made his grand entrance a year ago with Synthetic Soul. First up is a single with like-minded pals Emotional Oranges called “Bonafide,” followed up a debut LP, Hope For Sale, which will start to roll out in March. Chiiild did some recording a while back in the woods at Wild Studio in Saint-Zénon, Quebec. —Erik Leijon
