2015 will go down in history as the year that Teedra Moses finally blessed us with a proper sophomore album. She ended the decade-plus drought with her recent collection Cognac & Conversation, which contains some of her best and most eclectic work to date. One of the album’s standouts is the sensual track “Skin Diver,” an unexpected foray into electronic music that surprises and pleases. The outstanding track also happens to be the first single from Transitions, the sophomore album of Teedra’s collaborator on the track, Boddhi Satva.
We here at SoulBounce are proud to premiere the single exclusively here, as it definitely warrants a listen or a hundred. The downtempo moment brings a lot to the table, from shimmering synths to tribal-inspired drums and a woozy electronic bass, each painting a memorable soundscape that’s simply beautiful to listen to. And then there’s Teedra’s restrained yet dynamic vocal, which pours over the track like honey and is definitely just as sweet.
While Teedra’s Cognac & Conversation is in stores now, Boddhi’s Transitions will hit stores on September 18th, bringing along collaborations with Les Nubians, Omar, Georgia Anne Muldrow and Dudley Perkins. If “Skin Diver” is any indication, it will be a must-hear collection this fall. While you mark your calendars, dive into “Skin Diver” below.
