What makes Desire such a standout debut is that it sounds like an artist at home in the journey of life and in lively dialogue with their craft. A pattern of flux and flexibility runs through the album’s palette, song structures, and emotional tenor. The more somber and reflective moments, like the mindscape-evoking “The Void” and “Studies in Black Trauma,” which features potent, prayer-like bars from Johannesburg rapper Gyre, are not immune to this feeling of movement, thanks to Marea’s invigorating production decisions. The latter starts out akin to a death-metal opera and moves through several sound scenes before morphing into an aural bubble bath. Along with the London composer and sound artist Klein, Marea belongs to a new generation of independent artists approaching voice, musicianship, and performance with all the senses in mind. It’s that embodied vitality that allows Desire to speak so fluently to the mind, body, and soul.
