Single Review: Connor Terrones – “What Can I Do?”

by Valerie Vampola

Guitarist Connor Terrones debuts his solo project with his first single, “What Can I Do?” giving listeners a peek into the lofi tastes of the long-time Colorado soul and R&B sideman. Featuring previous Denver residents Julian Cary and Roy Matz, the track is immersed in jazz-harmony practices heard in artists like Thundercat and Michael Mayo. Cary’s cool vocals complement the spacy synth, creating some exciting moments when he breaks into harmony. The track leans heavily into the hip-hop aesthetic, complete with a rap verse by Matz. Terrones leads with a strong foot and establishes a clear aesthetic to get listeners excited for the rest of his upcoming album.

“What Can I Do” is out July 1. Catch Terrones’ Album release show at Lost Lake in Denver on September 2nd with Ghost Tapes, Dead Eye Dojo and The White Moms. Visit for more.
