The Chicago collective led by Chris Mathien, released their first single from their upcoming album. Sounds a little like Mika in my opinion but that's not a bad thing. Here is an excerpt from their website:
"Merging calm, funky soul, rock, and a strong hip-hop aesthetic, singer-songwriter Chris Mathien (MAY-thee-in) conveys the passion of reggae and soul vocal stylings, the free experimentation of Parliament-Funkadelic Rock, while incorporating the unconventional hip-hop attitudes of A Tribe Called Quest and The Roots."
Make what you will of that.
