London ‘quintet’ Culross Close have announced a new album, Forgotten Ones.
A mix of spiritual jazz, lo-fi hip hop and spacey electronics, per The Vinyl Factory, the six-track album follows the seven-inch Moments, released last March, and their 2016 debut, Home.
The record contends with a world that “concerns exploitation, using another’s vulnerability for one’s own benefit, an idea so commonplace we only recognise its ill in the extremes,” its accompanying description reads. “From reflection, to acceptance, to hope, Forgotten Ones delves into the contradictions of accepting the status quo while identifying its shortcomings.”
Culross Close is the brainchild of the artist known as K15 (real name Kieron Ifill). According to his website, it’s a “fictitious jazz quintet.”
Forgotten Ones is out March 15 via Esencia. You can stream the gently transcendent title track—the first song of Colleen ‘Cosmo’ Murphy’s recent Worldwide FM mix—below:
