After a pair of lauded EPs, ‘barely rap’ duo Faithful Johannes and Jonathan Swift have a debut album out.
Swift’s beats take a turn for the clubbier on this new outing for the Durham pair while Johannes’s vocals remain their familiar, low-key, laid-back style. The upshot is more of a clash of styles which brings out more of both of them. Having built a cult following with their idiosyncratic style – a following we’re proud to be part of – this could just push them over the top into wider consciousness. It’s certainly deserved.
