Self Analysis: MON/KU’s “Inner Odyssey”

“Inner Odyssey” aims to figure itself out, though the journey itself really does end up being the highlight. Artist MON/KU has dabbled in the disorienting and downright suffocating, but here they get a bit more playful. With singing coated in digital effects, MON/KU slithers through the slight electronic backdrop, just trying things out until a saxophone rips in. From there things slow down, fizzle and pick back up, almost feeling like electronic improv. Yet this unpredictability sells it. Listen above.
