serpentwithfeet is well acquainted with interweaving the human with the divine, and ‘DEACON’ is equally well versed in this, where he embodies the role of the Christian deacon who exudes cool and calm energy while maintaining order in his congregation.
The album creates a sanctuary wherein Black love is paramount, its tenderness a celebration of its beauty. Songs like ‘Malik’ and ‘Wood Boy’ ooze sex in a bold and daring way, all while being carried through serpentwithfeet’s exceptional vocal, which radiates confidence.
‘DEACON’ deftly highlights serpentwithfeet’s growth as an artist, and its honesty and warmth mean it’s destined to be one of the most important albums of 2021.
