After LPs for Planet Mu and Innovative Leisure, the latest full-length from Chris Ward’s Tropics project drops via Plus Fours. Nocturnal Souls is an accomplished neo-soul album in the vein of his mates BADBADNOTGOOD - indeed, the celebrated jazz group crop up as backing band here. Ward’s fine songwriting style incorporates elements of the French New Wave, cosmic jazz, chillwave and even a little 'Reckoner'-era Radiohead. He’s got a great set of pipes on him too.
With floaty synths and steady, dreamy beats, this record will surely leave you enraptured. A sound of carelessness and nonchalance, delivered with the greatest attention to detail, Tropics’ latest is enticing and fresh. Get it while it’s hot and still available on vinyl - this could be a record to remember.
