If Charlotte’s Mavi feels like one of the more polished up and coming acts you’ve heard in a while, it’s because of the incredible amount of grind he’s had up to this point. On the day of his birth, Mavi delivers his much-anticipated album Let The Sun Talk.
The 13-track joint has Mavi continuing to refine his relaxed but fiery style and disclosing more details about a life of pain and an upbringing to be great. Although a majority of the tracks are under two minutes, and the entire album spans about 32 minutes long. Each track sounds more like a demo or sketching, but this raw quality underscores the project’s overarching concept of struggling to articulate pain in a way that makes for a cohesive listen from beginning to end.
With a slew of production, fans were eager to see Earl & MIKE credited. This gloomy vibe of the project gets carried throughout the whole body of work. Some of the topics that are explored throughout the album range from overcoming obstacles, friends coming and going and much more — but through it all, Mavi’s sorrow persists. Mavi flexes his artistic prowess with scattershot imagery and messier, chaotic song structures.
All in all, the album journeys listener through the process of overcoming trauma and healing but ultimately, Mavi chooses to leave the story unfinished.
