With so many hyped releases dropping last Friday it wouldn’t be surprising if you’d let some slip through the cracks; Vagabon’s debut album, Infinite Worlds, is one that you cannot let pass you by.
Vagabon front woman and producer, Lætitia Tamko, has created a project that superbly explores and pushes the boundaries of Indie. Whether it’s with anthems like opening track The Embers, journeys through electronica on Mal à L’aise, or acoustic numbers like Alive and a Well, Infinite Worlds is incredibly expansive for a project that lasts less than half an hour. Fear & Force is a personal highlight. Opening with a beautiful finger picked guitar passage Lætitia sings of “hiding in the smallest spaces” creating a claustrophobic sonic environment. This is then relieved by the chorus’ warm bass and light harmonised vocals with lyrics speaking of returning to a more comfortable, familiar environment. It’s songwriting like this that comes across so easily and effectively that help make this such an unmissable debut. Check out Fear & Force in the link below.
