Cassowary is the project of LA-native multi-instrumentalist Miles Shannon. His music mixes jazz lines, r’n’b vibes, hip-hop and vintage funk textures. He announced the release of his self-titled debut album which will be released April 24th via Fat Possum. We already shared “Belt Notch!”; “Moth” is a new excerpt.
“‘Moth’ is an experimentation with time and groove,” says Shannon on the track. “It was inspired by the sporadic movements of a moth in flight, going towards light. With this in mind, the song is also meant to harmonically represent drastic ascension following a lower point.” Listen below.
