‘In Praise Of Shadows’ is a delirious dreamland of soulful vocals, D’Angelo-ish guitars and muted electronic beats. Its fourteen tracks are a contemplation on “the balance of light and dark,the painful things you have to heal from or accept,that bring you through to a better place,”says the 25-year-old Puma Blue, real name Jacob Allen.“It’s about finding light in darkness - and realising that it’s what got me here today.”

Puma Blue’s nocturnal, soul-searching sound was born from a decade in which the 25-year-old was plagued with insomnia, “for literally a decade, I just couldn’t sleep,” says the cult-acclaimed London songwriter / producer. That certainly helps to explain the hazy, late-night ‘voicemail ballads’ of the early EP releases that propelled him to prominence, 2017’s ‘Swum Baby’ and 2018’s‘Blood Loss’ earning him a reputation as affecting chronicler of unrequited love and inner turmoil.

It’s an intimacy still present across ‘In Praise OfShadows’ but there’s also a new maturity and lucidity to the way in which Allen deals with his demons and celebrates beauty across his debut album, influenced no doubt by his journey over the last two years in which a blossoming romance has finally helped him to sleep whilst a burgeoning career forced the previously bedroom-bound songwriter out into the open, driving him to find new perspectives on loss, love and everything in between.
