Darker Shade Of Blue


After his debut album ‘Cerulean’ a couple of years ago, things got very hyped about Will Wisenfeld aka Baths, with the release earning plaudits in many taste-making end of year lists. As the title of his forthcoming second album on Anticon might suggest, ‘Obsidian’ finds the Los Angeles producer in a little bit of a bleaker mood, and while we’re obviously not talking Lone proportions of blackness, everything is relative. He explains ‘I’ve always been inspired by really dark material and from the beginning I knew I wanted the songs to be much darker, both musically and lyrically’ and even though the soaring ‘Miasma Sky’ doesn’t really tick the ‘dark’ box, titles such as ‘Ossuary’, ‘Earth Death’ and ‘No Past Lives’ point to an artist exploring some murkier themes.
