Touching on elements of classical, jazz and ambient electronica, Pigments was conceived as a collections of “movements” drawing on Richard’s experiences growing up as a Black woman.

“This album is what it means to be a dreamer and finally reach a place where you’ve decided to love the pigments that you have,” she explains.

Pigments follows Richard’s Second Line album in 2021, as well as Zahn’s Pale Horizon LP on Cascine earlier this year in May.
