Fresh from the upcoming mixtape inkytunes III, back then is a chaotic yet emotive soundscape and song, featuring soulful vocals and an overall rising sense of anticipation and energy that increasingly envelops you.
In true shoe-gaze fashion, imagery begins to shine through the cracks – scenes conjured from memory, provoking deeper thought, enhancing that hypnotic aspect all the more so.
An acoustic strum, an arrangement of voices, that raw, unedited presentation – you know the sound, and you trust it to offer something real; refreshing.
It’s a pleasure to hear music like this make a come back, it feels perfectly well suited to some reflective moment of cinema or TV drama, and yet it works equally well as the comforting embrace music fans often need on the long drive home.
A gorgeous yet short playlist that brings forth a band with a heartfelt approach to songwriting and an unquestionable talent for performance.
Expect heartbreak, heartache, existential pondering and uninhibited passion. A 21-track subtly explosive portrayal of truthful intimacy and thoughts we all tend to ponder but rarely come across to such an extent in modern music.
Even with the eclectic and unpredictable nature of the music on this project, the lyrics are by far the most compelling and fascinating thread throughout it. Prepare, if you can, to feel heart broken, enlightened, uplifted, calmed, and concerned – all within the hour.
naldooo puts a whole lot of modern life into this album – the result is something surprisingly eclectic, endlessly melodic & consistently impressive. Rather than allowing himself to be pigeonholed, naldooo takes full advantage of the album format, introducing his varied influences from the offset.
Jason Phillips has the tone & lungs required to really rock this sound. A live show would likely satisfy the Green Day or Blink fans who crave that energy.
