serpentwithfeet – “Flickering” (Prod. The Haxan Cloak)

serpentwithfeet is the moniker of 27-year-old Baltimore-born, Brooklyn-residing singer Josiah Wise. After embedding himself in New York’s queer music scene and uploading demos over the past few years (“I was basically just posting something new every week on Soundcloud, waiting for someone to take notice,” he says in a press release), he linked up with the Haxan Cloak for his debut single for Tri Angle Records, “Flickering.” It’s an impressive and promising jumping-off point for the singer, a tender paean featuring the Haxan Cloak’s trademark minimalist production and Wise’s voice yearning for connection: “My heart is strong/ My will is strong/ I offer myself to you.” Listen below.
