D∆WN (aka Dawn Richard) has made some significant sonic strides since her former days in the Diddy-assembled girl outfit, Danity Kane (RIP). Since going solo, the singer has managed to nourish her craft into something that challenges mainstream notions of how contemporary pop and R&B should look and sound.

While she’s certainly no stranger in the game, Dawn seems to finally be getting the recognition that she deserves. Pairing up with genre-bending LA-based label Fade to Mind, the singer has just recently released a fresh new EP, titled Infrared, with the help of sultry Brooklyn-based producer Kingdom and Prince Will (both of whom have collaborated with fellow alt-R&B darling Kelela).

The result is a 4-track compilation featuring a range of sensuous, noir-tinged R&B jams that will get your pulse pumping in the best possible way.
