Brooklyn based singer Arthur Ashin goes all out on his impressive sophomore album, in which he confronts his long-standing depression. Landing somewhere between indie pop, electronica and R&B, Anxiety is a great ride. “Play By Play” is freaking unbelievable, the album’s best, a soulful slow jam that leaves you in heavy anticipation of the album to come. Autre Ne Veut is a true indie-soul star, one that deserves the world’s attention. His voice is soulful and his falsetto is strong. However, in some places, the beat is overproduced and far too busy. Listening start-to-finish might be difficult.
Final Word: This album has a great concept and Autre Ne Veut performs it beautifully. I heavily recommend it.
