Released 9th April 2018.
Whilst researching the Metrophobia’s background – to see his past work – I found the true definition of the word “Metrophobia” from which the artist, Yury, takes his pseudonym.
Apparently, “Metrophobia” is the fear of poetry.
Poetry is how I would describe Metrophobia’s release “Manatee.” There is an aching beauty to the album – all be it a short album – that is reminiscent of a production by Taylor Deupree, or some such giant in the music world, that inherently puts the mind at ease.
The harmonies are lush and the production is spot on. I love it.
