CMU Approved

Approved: Boots

By | Published on Wednesday 30 September 2015


Boots is set to release his debut album ‘Aquaria’ on 13 Nov. I guarantee you’ve heard his work before though: in recent times he’s played guitar for Run The Jewels, produced FKA Twigs, and was a songwriter and producer on a sizeable chunk of Beyonce’s last album.

Listening to ‘Aquaria’, you can see how he’s adapted his style to suit all of those different artists. On the album your brain will quickly identify rock, hip hop, R&B, and pop, but further listening never gives enough purchase to hold on to any one of them, leaving your perceptions spinning and drawing you deeper inside.
