Hailing from Philadelphia, rising vocalist Moses Mosima has slowly but surely carved his place among the crop of artists to watch. Utilizing notions such as heartbreak and self-love, he takes these topics and spins them in a relatable way that endears himself to listeners of all backgrounds. Looking to take a step further in his progression, he checks in with his impressive new audio/visual project, Cul De Sac.
As mentioned, Cul De Sac draws heavily from the experiences of Moses but also infuses vague experiences that can be applied to almost everybody. In doing this, the songwriting of each track does a wonderful job of endearing the listener almost immediately, allowing for appreciation of other things such as production and vocals on subsequent listens. The album is also accompanied by a music video for every song to fully bring the Cul De Sac to life. Another impressive quality about the project is the fact that it was completely produced by Moses himself.
Utilizing acoustic guitar riffs to buoy the production, the minimalistic vibe of each song clears the way for Moses to showcase his wonderful vocal range. Notable tracks on the project include, “Full Bloom,” “Downpour” and “Cul De Sac,” with the latter serving as the project’s lead single and de-facto standout. Taking all of the aforementioned qualities and tying them into one package, “Cul De Sac” is the song you play for your friends to put them on.
In its entirety, Cul De Sac is another strong addition to Moses Mosima’s growing catalog of self-reflecting music. Showcasing his ability to effortlessly bounce from one sound to the next without compromising the quality of any of these ideas, Moses Mosima’s music has the longevity other artists can’t seem to attain.
