Jordan Rakei Origin album coverExpansive but endlessly detailed and visceral, the universe of Jordan Rakei’s soul-pop arrangements is totally enveloping.

On new album Origin, the acclaimed Brisbane-bred, London-residing artist looked to dystopian visions depicted in TV series Twin Peaks, Black Mirror and The Handmaid’s Tale to inform narratives about our future which strangely complement his bright, intimate instrumentation.

Up there for thinking, down there for dancing, in the middle for the heart – Rakei’s got it all, and it’s beautifully bottled on Origin.

Origin is out June 14 via Ninja Tune/Inertia.
