Brooklyn’s Body Language has always been known for their restless pop experiments. Since their inception in 2008, the band (Angelica Bess, Grant Wheeler, Matt Young and Ian Chang) has been perfecting their future-shocked blend of soul and R&B, alternating inspired forays into electronic pop (2013’s Grammar) and more stripped back intimate pieces.
Released on October 9th, Body Language’s brand new album, Travel Guide, chronicles an itinerary through ten tracks of genre-bent psychedelic R&B. From writing the record on both coasts to slowly spreading themselves out beyond the limits of Brooklyn, NY, distance and wayfaring seems to hold no water to their force as writers, as they triumphantly deem this record to be their most collaborative effort yet.
Dodging raindrops in their own personal paradise, and then ducking catcalls on the streets of Brooklyn, Travel Guide is an escape to many scenes in the day in the life of the trio. Here’s your passport, your bag and a little sunshine in a bottle, enjoy the trip.
