EDITORS’ NOTES

France’s Møme takes a decidedly tropical approach on his debut album, in which fluttering synths sway like palm fronds and tempos dip to a too-hot-to-move crawl. “Delta” opens the album with slow-motion house beats and sticky, syncopated synth riffs, while “Super Hot Days” is a beach-party jam par excellence, drizzling liquid funk riffs over a colorful nu-disco groove. Singer Merryn Jeann steals the spotlight on standouts “Why Is It” and “Aloha,” bringing a husky, vintage-soul mood to productions geared toward a future paradise.

TITLE TIME

About Møme

Known by his stage name of Møme, French touch and chillwave artist Jérémy Souillart emerged in 2014 with Eclipse, his self-released debut EP. A native of Nice, Souillart studied at the Nice Academy of Music, playing guitar and piano first in rock bands before segueing into more electronic-based composition. He signed with Parisian label DDM Recordings and released a follow-up EP called Cosmopolitan a year later, further expanding his bright and dreamy style. Relocating to Australia, Souillart outfitted his surf van to double as a roving recording studio, where he recorded the appropriately sunny Aloha EP in 2016. His debut full-length, Panorama, arrived later that year, drawing comparisons to artists like Flume and Chet Faker. Inspired by his world travels, Møme launched an audio-visual series in 2018 beginning with the two-song single Møment I. ~ Timothy Monger
