Life can take you in directions that you don’t plan or expect.
When Joshua Worden released the album Into Fog in 2014, he didn’t expect to spend three years on its follow-up. “A lot of stuff has happened between then and now,” he explains. “I got married, bought a house, completely renovated it. All this ‘life stuff’ started taking up more of my time that I was devoting to music, as it often does when you’re in your 30s and having to grow up a little bit.”
He never gave up on music, but he found that his ideas were developing at a slower pace than they had in the past.“ These songs, these ideas, they were cinders… They were always burning slowly under my day to day. It just took a really long time for them to finally come to light.”
Now that they have, it’s time for Worden’s music to shine once again. His new EP, Cinders, features his signature multifaceted sound. There are the smooth, hip-hop-influenced beats and the melodies and harmonies that reflect a variety of influences – R&B, pop, trip-hop, chillwave and more. Just as importantly, there are the imagistic, tantalizing lyrics, which draw upon singer-songwriter usages without becoming self-indulgent.
Recorded at his home studio in Atlanta, Cinders is the fruit of a long, deeply introspective period.
