A heartfelt account of relationships, of knowing when to let go and when to fight for them, this is a dreamy, groovy, lustrous treat of a record.

It’s a mesmerising twisting of genres - from classic soul and old-school hip-hop, to beautifully fresh pop structures. the record is dense with ideas and adventurous; a sonic-leap forth. “I was interested in having a lusher sound, more rich,” Wästberg says. The sense of exploration resonates throughout the record and can be defined by its start and end points. The record’s boldest moment is reserved for ‘Deployed’, a collaboration with Little Dragon’s Yukimi Nagano.
