Tropics - Rapture

The new album from Tropics, aka 27 year-old Chris Ward, looks outwards, armed with a newfound confidence that foregrounds his vocal performance and songwriting. A multi-instrumentalist from an early age, Ward has always drawn on his musical upbringing when composing, but this time around he’s pushed himself to develop a fuller sound than ever. Taking influence from Beach Boys, Max Roach and Arthur Russell, Ward has crafted an album that fuses his love of avant-garde percussion, ‘70s and ‘80s singer-songwriters such as Peter Gabriel known for pop-leaning hooks, and deep production that takes cues from ambient music.
