Sojua

The inaugural solo outing by Sojua — Josh Burgess of intercontinental synth-pop quartet Yumi Zouma — took shape during the surging pandemic last spring, as venues shuttered, tours were canceled, and quarantine became quotidian. Suddenly rich with free time, he began sifting through his archives, imagining ways to communicate without the universal “beauty of language” intrinsic to his primary group's vocal-driven pop. What emerged were four fluid electronic instrumentals, each flexing a fresh wavelength of rhythmic sophistication, melodic subtlety, and twilit emotion, inspired by scenes and sounds spanning Mood Hut, Four Tet, the Paradise Garage, and beyond. Music for bodies both alone or together, low-slung but high-minded.
