Brooklyn’s Von Sell doesn’t need to insist very hard on anything he wants when he can adroitly dish out music like he does on I Insist, its fluttering electropop and soul melting me to the core with ease. I Insist is a brilliant follow up to last year’s debut, Ivan, making the long interim in between tracks well worth the wait. Superbly textured hypnotic production and expressive keys evoke both James Blake and Miike Snow, while Von Sell’s pensively pacing, deeply nostalgic vocals mesmerizes like a combination of Rostam and Grizzly Bear.
