QUADRATA

New album Wings from Mozez ( long term Zero 7 and Nightmares On Wax collaborator) is out now on iTunes!

Long before Sam Smith and Jess Glynne got their start as collaborators with the likes of Disclosure and Rudimental, Jamaican soul singer Mozez was helping influential soothing club duo Zero 7 to tell their story with an unhurried simplicity.

Across two albums at the turn of the ‘00s, it was Mozez’s graceful voice that shone alongside the then-unknown Sia and Sophie Barker in Zero 7’s compelling comedown music. Blessed with a skyscraping voice, while knowing when to keep his vocals unadorned, you’d have bet on Mozez becoming as successful as Sia, especially when his debut solo album, 2006’s haunting So Still, won rave reviews. Since then, other than touring as the singer for long-time friend Nightmares On Wax, Mozez has been silent.

Until now. Nine years on, and the perfectionist singer/writer/producer is ready to emerge with Wings, an album that’s definitely worth waiting for. If its lyrics tell of a man at the crossroads, unsure which path to take in life, there’s a certainty to the music across its lush, beautiful landscape. Not a note is wasted, and you won’t hear 12 songs that are better sung all year. Mozez, it’s clear, is a man who knows the true meaning of song.

Wings’ title track and first single has already garnered praise from Dermot O’Leary at Radio 2 and 6 Music’s Tom Robinson, with the video notching over a million YouTube hits. Wings opens the album, and what follows are rich, varied textures that encompass the absurdly catchy A

Place Called Home and Hannah, the dark drama of Planets, Run River’s choppy funk, unsettling Brian Eno ambience on Phillia and Broken Toy’s multi-coloured psychedelia.

What unites the songs is that, for all the troubles about love, money and friendship within, there’s a strong message of hope throughout. “The point of the record is optimism,” nods Mozez. “There’s so much frustration and trouble in society, but the future is what we as humanity make of it. We’re in a state of metamorphosis, and my view is we can have a grand future if we can come to a collective consciousness.”
