AM & Shawn Lee
ESL Music (US)
Celestial Electric finds L.A.-based indie-pop auteur AM and London-based groovemaster/experimentalist Shawn Lee pooling their talents to create a unique brand of “electro-soul” that achieves seamless pop perfection, while mining a startlingly broad array of stylistic influences. It’s a resulting blend of heartfelt, warmly melodic songcraft and vivid, inventive soundscapes underlying the artists’ abiding love for all manner of vintage genres, encompassing pop, soul, funk, jazz, Brazilian tropicalia, Turkish psychedelia, soundtracks/library music from the ’60s, ’70s and ’80s. The album marks a creative milestone for both artists, offering timeless, deeply compelling music that showcases the duo’s remarkable creative chemistry.
