After first finding out about singer/songwriter Juto through his ridiculously smooth cover of Daniel Caesar’s “Best Part”, I’ve been keeping up with the steady stream of singles he’s been dropping over the past few months. Last month, he shared a collaboration with another one of my favorites (and former artist of the week) Family Reunion titled “Fling”, and today, he’s back with yet another piece of new music. More of a snippet than a polished song, “Gaze” resides in the same dreamy space that Juto’s other work inhabits. Over nothing more than a shoegaze guitar riff, Juto’s pitched up vocals capture the intensity and intimacy you feel when looking into the eyes of someone you’ve fallen for. At only a minute-and-a-half, Juto accomplishes a lot with strikingly little.
