Atlanta R&B/Trip-Hop extraordinaire, Joshua Worden, is one ethereal and seemingly celestial vocalist to watch in 2018 and his upcoming EP release, ‘Cinders’, serves as a testament that statement. The first and title track, “Bivens Arm”, ignites the imagination as Joshua takes listeners down a tunnel of contemplation over a starry-eyed dose of ambience that is produced with intricate detail and a vision abounding with the intention to create utter musical delight.
“The Wonder” is the second track in which Joshua’s hermetic cocoons of isolation and solitude have led to his shadows exploding within silence that have inspired him to create a chromatic world of inner thought that has served to uplift the aura and mood of the entrancing song. “Tennessee” is the third track in which Joshua relays the message that although he has been immersed within nature, he has also been trapped in his mind which has led to distraction and the lack of the ability to fully appreciate the wondrous gifts that the world offers through the great outdoors. Closing out with “Echoes”, stinging melodies and an impactful instrumental effect act as a doorway into the weary heart that Joshua currently contains within his mortal container as he reflects upon encrustations of life experiences that have had an impactful effect on his ability to share his life with another.
Music is a sheltering rock for a variety of Joshua’s inner storms and his minimal production style reflects the intensity that he encounters in the dark. Self-engineered tracks take flight throughout ‘Cinders’ and create utter relaxation in mind for listeners who tend to find happiness in simplicity and leading a simple life. If you’re a fan of artists such as Rhye, Blood Orange, Moses Sumney and The Internet, then we recommend to add Joshua Worden to your playlists and check out everything that he has to offer on Soundcloud.
