Prepare the Body

"Prepare the Body" by An Only Child


ScreenShot2020-10-15at113530AM_thumb.png


On his debut album “Prepare the Body,” An Only Child combines soft vocals and instrumentation ranging from orchestral, to more jazz-inspired, with electronic R&B creating an emotive and evocative listener experience. The twenty-nine year old, who is also trained as a modern dancer, considers identity and love, particularly self-love and queer love, on this debut.  His New Orleans background is potentially to blame for the album’s incorporation of saxophone and various jazz motifs, a staple genre of the region.  An Only Child sounds like a cross between Moses Sumney, with his authentic and gentle voice, and Prince, with his instrumentation choices and incorporation of electronic R&B, but is a force all his own.
