the experimental R&B/gospel singer weaves together intricately layered harmonies, a sumptuous bottom register (which beautifully counterbalances his fluttering tenor) and ballsy sonic experimentation to deliver an astonishing full-length declaration of intent .
this is a return to the sensibilities and wide-eyed curiosity of his musical youth before symmetry and sterile soundscapes ruled the roost. he’s developed an unctuous sound that suggests billowing clouds and the dense, plodding stomp of 12-bar blues. fans of frank ocean, james blake, sampha and moses sumney need to hear this! “Ever eclectic, he blends the sweeping, spiritual sounds of gospel with the theatrical trill of R&B and the sombre throb of electronic music to deliver a bigger, warmer sound than his previous work” – exclaim!, "serpentwithfeet exists beyond genre" 9/10 - loud and quiet
