Hi-Res
Fans of Woodkid have awaited a new album for seven years, but the man is in no rush. After the success of his first LP The Golden Age, Woodkid quietly reaped the rewards: he directed a music video for Rihanna, wrote a film score (Jonas Cuaron’s – son of Alfonso Cuaron – film Desierto), produced for other artists (Mykki Blanco’s album Mykki), and penned the music for a Louis Vuitton show. He then went on to ponder “the collective and individual responsibility of creating in a world on the edge of breaking point” which resulted in this rather solemn second album, a sort of “science fiction thriller”. The first thing we notice is Woodkid’s voice. He has been regularly working with a voice coach and has improved both his vocal height and depth. This can be heard on the melancholic Shift, composed in the period after the 2015 attacks in Paris, and on Horizons Into Battlegrounds, on which the Frenchman channels Nick Cave. Instrumentals again feature a symphonic orchestra (“less emphatic and less Hollywoodian according to the artist) and computer assisted music software, resulting in sounds that are lyrical (Reactor), metallic (Highway 27) and grandiose (on Goliath, a signature Woodkid track). © Smaël Bouaici/Qobuz
