Returning from his critically acclaimed 2018 album Negro Swan, fast-rising UK artist Dev Hynes — artist name Blood Orange — has returned with a variety of fast-paced soundscapes and psychedelic sensibilities via his latest project, Angel’s Pulse. Moving away from Negro Swan’s chilling and often anxiety-filled sounds, Hynes here has ever-so-slightly tweaked his vision to reflect an array of hard-packed possibilities, enlisting the likes of Toro Y Moi, Tinashe, Kelsey Lu, Justine Sky, Project Pat, Arca, and more for the project.

While the project undoubtedly reflects Hynes’ expertly-mandated sound, many of the tracks relish in influences from “shoe gaze” indie rock to dancehall, various inspirations are aptly blended alongside Hynes’ idiosyncratic vision of hip-hop and R&B. In many senses, the mixtape is the most expansive presentation of ideas that Hynes has released thus far, highlighting the artist’s immense influences.

You can listen to Angel’s Pulse below. Blood Orange is set to play a variety of shows around the world this Summer, you can find all the dates here.
