There's a special air to MOODindigo's latest "Thank U," filling the room like the smooth aura of a candle swirling into the ambience. It feels effortless in movement and experimental in trajectory. The Brooklyn-based artist arrives with creative expression in mind and inspiration from artists like Erykah Badu at hand.
Describing its influence, he says, "This track is about me trying to say thank you to a person who had been a very big part of my life but was now moving away, as well as some bars about me not knowing what to do about it, feeling a little out of place."
Grasped by experience, the concept evolves into one we recognize. MOODindigo's voice becomes a layer placed carefully on top of our own thoughts, articulating even the faintest remnants of the feeling. It draws up mementos and leaves spaces for the listener to fill subjectively. From lyrics to production, "Thank U" is a powerful creation and a taste from this next generation of artists.
