Mixing hip-hop, r’n’b, trance and classical music influences.
Three years in the making, the album draws on influences from across the duo’s youth — including musicals and classical music — with trance-influenced synthesizers, mixed with hip-hop and r’n’b vocals.
Believer uses the duo’s friendship to explore the contrast between self-image and external perception, self-doubt, and communicating with others once intimacy has faded.
