Hailing from Berlin, this talented violinist, composer, singer and globalist injects his gentle neoclassicism with a healthy dose of pop-savvy electronics on this, his second LP. Lyrically and emotionally articulate, Stolze is fearless in tackling big issues like environmental degradation or the trauma of conflict and migration, which he treats with impressive light-touch sensitivity. Once or twice (see ‘Orphan’), it feels a little earnest, but elsewhere, and particularly on standout ‘The Way We Care’, it all comes together rather beautifully.
