I’ve been excited for this album since Smerz released the i don’t talk about that much / Hva hvis single last year, which is incredible as a whole piece if you haven’t already watched please do. Believer was released at the end of February on XL.
This is their debut album and it doesn’t disappoint. It feels much more cohesive and conceptual that their previous music as you would probably expect. Despite that there’s still a sense of unpredictability and experimental nature to the sounds. It goes from trance like vocals to glitchy strings to dreamy soundscapes. It’s a beautiful album and I love pretty much all the tracks.
It’s difficult to describe it anymore without feeling like I’m doing it a disservice so definitely check it out and also take a watch of the Believer video.
