EDITORS’ NOTES

Listening to Pendulum is like being in an intimate heart-to-heart with the New York singer/songwriter. Aisha Badru's breathy vocals examine the scars on the soul—the lessons learned, the healing, and the pain that lingers just beneath the surface. Beautiful moments are only elevated by her petal-soft voice, which resembles Björk at her quietest, and the stark arrangements are amplified by strings (“Navy Blues”) and dark beats (“Bridges,” “Fossil Fuels”). Pendulum is a restorative elixir when everything seems too much. Plus, four chilled-out instrumental tracks allow you to channel your own inspiration.
