the German electronica artist’s third album is streaked with cinematically moody soundscapes, darkened by vocals that echo as if from some place just out of view, making for a somewhat haunting, yet always enjoyable, listening experience.
this venture is the sound of a young artist getting in touch with his roots, exploring new landscapes and freeing inhibitions; deconstructing pop atmospheres while in search of his past, and reforming them into something deeply moving. Inspiration has been drawn from the life and works of the baroque painter Michelangelo Merisi da Caravaggio, the album fuses laidback pop sensibility with moody cinematographic soundscapes, a departure from his previous sounds. ‘D’ANGELO’ features elements of Balearic pop, noir jazz, post-rock, and the raw genre scramblings of fellow traveller Forest Swords, wound up into something excruciatingly personal.
