    In 2013, it takes a certain level of bravery to make R&B this open-hearted, joyous, and musical. U.K. acts like 4hero, New Sector Movements, and Bugz in the Attic were doing it in the early 2000s, but none of them put it together quite like this, in one concentrated shot, with the songwriting on the same high level as the productions and arrangements. This crew is elite.

    The Foreign Exchange have transformed themselves from a bastion of jazzy Hip Hop into a crossover group more akin to R&B’s soulful beginnings than the underground sound that was synonymous with Little Brother. Ultimately, listeners are the beneficiaries.

    Love in Flying Colors is steeped in an honest, vulnerable lyricism bolstered by dreamy, feel-good synth vibes regarding the complex emotion called love and all it represents.

    This is all-out openness and clarity, which, for better or for worse, is just a little more grown-up.
