After five studio albums, Salami’s music continues to push genre boundaries and is certainly no stranger to spoken word – ‘Desperate Times, Mediocre Measures’ sees him return to this method as he waxes poetically about the state of power and wealth in the modern world.

Lookman has untethered himself from any genre classifications on ‘Ottoline’ (release date: September 2022) . “I used to describe my music as postmodern blues,” he says, “but these days I just describe it as lyrically-centred, genre-nonspecific music.” Written during various lockdowns, the world’s collective experience of isolation has informed large parts of the new album, thematically, but ironically it’s his most collaborative to date. He created the album “with a bunch of people I respect and we tried to make a record that resonates with the post-Covid effects of the world and how it’s affected artists.”
