Yes, that is a tattoo of a pentagram on Josiah Wise’s head, flanked by the words SUICIDE and HEAVEN. And yes, that could possibly be glitter in his beard. Avant-agressive, are the words used by Pitchfork: he’s larger than life and so is his music. He has a wall-to-wall sound, golden frills and baroque like strings – something that somehow manages to never sound over the top bombastic, thanks to the smoothness of the nineties RnB vocals. It’s big, cinematic, completely stripped of the classic song structure and yet it’s very much pop.
