Last November, in a New York Times Magazine interview with her brother Jaden, 14 year-old Wilough (born Willow Smith) articulated her passions for quantum physics and the mystic, spiritual teachings of Osho. Yesterday, homegirl dropped Interdimensional Tesseract, a three-track release inspired by the fictional Na’vi language of James Cameron’s Avatar and obscure geometrical figures–like tesseracts. Enlisting Daniel D’Artiste (aka CHAOTIC) for production duties, and presumably a vocal hook on closing track “See U Dance,” Wilough saunters and swerves over jolting synthesizers and abrasive drum machines.
Interdimensional Tesseract is fresh and invigorating, albeit sometimes poorly mixed on the starry-eyed chanteuse’s vocals. Wilough‘s music wants to unlock your mind through sound, and so far she’s done a damn good job. Watch a 4D simulation of a tesseract being unwrapped below.
