A work of subtle ingenuity that reuses and repurposes a recurring beat, carefully sliding into new territories with every iteration - it's a brilliant, heady construct that subverts our heaving expectations just as often as it delights in its god-tier consistency.
a lazy club fantasy zone filled with Poems centring on themes of love; both real and imagined. the album was written and recorded at both their homes and various corners of South East London and Kent. After several recording sessions over roughly a year, eventually the music suddenly came into a sound that they wanted to follow. The tracks were built using piano loops on top of one beat, distortion added, then romantic vocal toplines.
"Tirzah’s LP is the one that connected with me most this year. Her third full-length with the brilliant Mica Levi on production is inspired in its simplicity. Brooding piano and distorted drums contrast wonderfully, providing a backdrop for Tirzah’s romantic vocals. Some songs do without the beat and others add fuzzed out guitar to the mix. The album has a hazy, gothic feel that is both otherworldly and very human." - Ryan
