“Aquarius ” Q&A

  • What has the artist said about the album?

    Tinashe Kachingwe via Stereogum /

    I definitely want people to know that this music was still created in a really genuine place, and I am staying true to my roots of recording music in my bedroom and writing music on my own and making sure that it still really feels true to who I was and true to my artistry.
