Conor Maynard – ‘R U Crazy’


Conor Maynard is back after his impressive debut album Contrast with new single ‘R U Crazy’. I for one felt slightly confused by the offbeat singing that opens the single in a jazz-esque style. However, after many, many, listens I’m singing along with impeccable timing.

The track is confused in terms of genre. The dub-step vocal edits make it appear more dance based than it truly is. The moments when Conor breaks into Timberlake style falsetto are chunks of gold in the rough.

Nonetheless, Maynard has his Mayniacs, in fact, I am a self-proclaimed one, that will adore this single. It has it’s flaws but all in all, it’s a solid effort from the 20 year old and an exciting hint towards things to come.

‘R U Crazy’ is out on 6th October 2013.
