On their third full-length, Moonlight, American husband-and-wife duo Johnnyswim inject their pastoral folk-soul sound with some much-needed liveliness, courtesy of R&B producer Malay.
The beats thump harder, the grooves dig deeper, and the overall effect improves Amanda Sudano and Abner Ramirez's already tight songwriting and knack for hooks. There's something pure and wholesome to their approach, which allows Moonlight to shimmer as a mature reflection on an ostensibly healthy adult relationship. At its core, Moonlight remains another intimate peek behind-the-scenes of this musical and real-life partnership. Malay's energy and atmospheric touch, has elevated it into Johnnyswim's smoothest work to date.
