People go, places change, nothing stays still. It was a concept that weighed heavily on singer-songwriter Elliot Moss' mind as he watched his friends move on around him whilst he stayed still working on his debut album, Highspeeds.
Three years on, and the 21-year-old multi-instrumentalist songwriter and producer has time now firmly on his side. Highspeeds was released in the US on Grand Jury in May and has seen Elliot hotly-tipped by The Fader and SPIN, support Cold War Kids and play the acclaimed FADER Fort SXSW showcase.
The momentum of Highspeeds is now only set to step up as the album is due for release in the UK on PIay It Again Sam on 25th September. It ’ s a breathtakingly emotive record that has Elliot effortlessly drawing on electronic, jazz and ambient vibes to create a truly immersive soundscape. This mélange is made only the more complete by Elliot’s rich vocals awash in a soul beyond his young years. Highspeeds is a debut that sits comfortably in the company of Bon Iver, Chet Faker, Washed Out and James Blake.
