The gentler side of Tri Angle.
Baltimore-born serpentwithfeet (né Josiah Wise) is an R&B and classical hybridist and the latest to sign to Tri Angle Records.
The 27-year-old artist had been training as a classical vocalist before breaking out on his own, dropping SoundCloud loosies and getting involved with NYC’s underground scene, which ultimately led to his link with the label.
“I decided in 2012 or in 2013 that I didn’t want a band anymore,” Wise said via press release. “I was like, ‘What would happen if I did my R&B thing over this classical shit?’” If ‘flickering’, his debut single on the label, is any indication, it is a lot of emotion spilling out methodically over sparse but gripping composition.
