IDN – ‘Kaleidoscope’
Boston-based artist IDN has released the superb album ‘Kaleidoscope’ in February 2022. It is an Electronic Avant-Garde release that needs to be added to your weekday playlist!
‘Heather Grey’ opens the album; it features silky tones, a laid back beat and relatable lyrics. The vocal performance is instantly enticing and draws the listener in.
Stand out tracks include ‘Groove Bot’, it features layered instrumentation which has been mixed exquisitely. ‘Sedative’ is a heavily industrial sounding song from the beginning that instantly drew us in. Also ‘Tidal Waves/Slow’ is a brilliant upbeat song with single potential, we adore the layered vocals and vivid melody lines.
‘Snake Charmer’ closes the release in IDN’s instantly recognisable style. The innovative vocal style and laboured beats add layers of interest and intrigue to the piece. And, as all great artists do, IDN leaves the listener wanting more!
IDN cites his influences as coming from artists such as Moses Sumney, Caribou, HOMESHAKE, and Flume. We can hear these muses coming through on ‘Kaleidoscope’ but make no mistake, IDN is an artist who is making innovative music in his own right.
IDN (AKA Iden Mozafari) says about the release, “‘Kaleidoscope’ is meant to reflect and refract itself. I wanted the album to show off my versatility as an artist and to reference itself in the interludes to blend everything together.”
‘Kaleidoscope’ has been superbly mastered by Leonardo Foletto. Together Mozafari and Foletto have created a piece of art that will stand the test of time.
We can not recommend ‘Kaleidoscope’ highly enough. IDN is pushing boundaries and making music that needs to be heard.
We very much look forward to following IDN’s career, and we can not wait to hear what he will do next. Until then, ‘Kaleidoscope’ is available to stream from the link below. Enjoy!
