Hannah Jadagu - Aperture

The album bridges the gap between adolescence and adulthood.

Hannah Jadagu - Aperture

Somehow finding time to piece together ‘Aperture’ between graduating high school in Texas and moving to college in New York, Hannah Jadagu’s debut shows her as an artist in flux, intricately joining the dots between moving spaces and growing up. Opener ‘Explanation’ is gorgeously ambient, a crescendo of tunnelling synths and swirling guitar peppered with her hazy harmonies. She’s a big fan of the vocoder – apparently an inspiration from the Black Eyed Peas. ‘Aperture’ is tender, a warm blanket sewn together with threads of faith and family. ‘Lose’ is a euphoric instrumental ode to her older sister; ‘Warning Sign’ a deceptively glittery track about being near breaking point. ‘Aperture’ stays true to its title, Hannah adjusting her lens with ease and darting nimbly between styles. The album bridges the gap between adolescence and adulthood; Hannah Jadagu jumps high between the two and lands firmly on her feet.
