More Than Sex is one of his best to emerge yet – the quality and the heart that has gone into the writing is mighty. A definite hit for 2019 and one well worth adding to the long-term playlist.

The details and intricacies surrounding this, the echos, the reverb, the tripped up beat, the outer edges lightly touched by fragments of additional vocals – all of these humble building blocks are crucial in helping make this a genuinely refreshing take on modern, alternative pop music.
Astral Planes is beautiful, a late night anthem for hip hop and trip hop fans alike. There’s a smooth pop groove to the whole thing, plus a clean finish yet one that still lets the dreamlike aura of the backdrop wash over you in a hypnotic way.
