Third Culture Kings "Is That Light You Carry"
Please get acquainted with Third Culture Kings! Is That Light You Carry is the debut album from the duo consisting of Alap Momin (dälek) and Jan Johansen (Glorybox). Recorded entirely on their iPhones, this is as beguiling and experimental as pop music can be. Utilizing notions of new wave, hip hop, R&B, world music, and many other genres, the whole thing feels spontaneous yet meticulous. It’s moody and sophisticated, like DJ Cam remixing Depeche Mode. Or something else. I’ll admit, this is a hard record to describe. Thankfully, it’s an easy record to love. Check out the detuned Beach Boys meets Tortoise meets Bjork sounds of “Flamingo.”
