Championed by the likes of Gilles Peterson following the release of his plaintive single ‘Longing For Your Love’ in 2013, singer-songwriter Ady Suleiman has spent the last four years quietly crafting introspective arrangements for a debut full-length.

Highlights include an updated ‘Longing For Your Love’ embellished with soft strings and backing vocals, Suleiman’s clean falsetto over the undulating groove on ‘I Remember’, and the squelchy synth-funk of ‘So Lost’.
