Last night at Open House in NYC, Dawn Richard held a listening party for her new EP “Armor On”. Dawn opened up the evening by talking about the EP and the sound she was going for on the album; she said she had a choice of which direction to go in, and said “I chose to be me”. She also mentioned that she felt the album “was pushing RnB sonically to a whole new level”. She then introduced and played each track from the EP before ending with taking questions from the audience. The sound of the album of definitely very futuristic, mixing elements of different genres with RnB.
