In a five-star review of Silk Sonic’s debut album, NME said, âOn ‘An Evening With Silk Sonic’ the magic is in the way the music moves: the songs are radiant and full of joy, formed from the synergy of two tirelessly creative minds. The album radiates appreciation for the simple but irreplaceable power of working alongside someone you trust and respect like no other – and it feels as easy and rewarding as an old friendship.
