New & Noteworthy: Alfa Mist – Falling ft. Kaya Thomas-Dyke

Twistedsoul ~ Alfa Mist

For the past month or so, Alfa Mist has slowly revealed little layers of his forthcoming  Structuralism album. ‘Falling’, is the latest track from the LP, and just like ‘Retainer’ and ‘Mulago’, it’s another enthralling affair.

The albums standout cut (in our humble opinion) is subtle in its delivery, his delicate keys and the equally soft drums allow the gorgeous vocals of Kaya Thomas-Dyke to steal the show. She grabs your attention and commands the song from start to finish – we’re hoping to hear more from her in the near future.

Named after the theoretical breakdown of the basic elements of conscious experience, ‘Structuralism’ is based around a conversation between Alfa Mist and his sister, a student of psychotherapy, discussing themes of debate culture and personal growth.

“Communication is my natural enemy,” says Alfa Mist. “I’ve never been great at articulating myself… I just think on things too much”.

With music this good, he can be safe in the knowledge that his wondrously honest and thought-provoking compositions speak deeply to the listener.

Tune in below.
