Self-proclaimed ‘sexistentialist’ Brad Stank delivers jazz-tinged decadence with his debut album, Kinky Om. The album is underpinned by Stank’s sexistentialist philosophy (a kind of ‘live for the moment’ theory), with ideas taken from Eastern religion and fused with the artist’s soothing and seductive sound. 

Two standout tracks from the album – which isn’t to say the others fade into the background, by any means – are Kinky Visitation and Breathing Like A Baby. Kinky Visitation is a relaxing, psychedelic track delivered through buttery smooth vocals, woozy strings and slow percussion, while Breathing Like A Baby – a track underpinned by the narrative of finding inner balance – combines the lyrical flair of rapper Ryshon Jones with mellow croons and upbeat bluesy chords.
