Stream Choker’s blissful new three-track project Mono No Moto

The Detroit musician’s first offering since 2018’s Honeybloom

January 24, 2019

Enigmatic Detroit musician Choker's music stretches beyond any conventional genre, and in fact dabbles in a few different sounds.


The result is a refreshingly, soulful, and poppy R&B and rap energy that can easily gives off Frank Ocean-esque vibes. Today, Choker offers up a three-track set titled Mono No Moto via The FADER. Listen down below.

The three songs all carry a soothing tone, with "Petrol Bliss" — a warm blend of streaming synths, heavy-knocking drums, and Choker's elastic vocals being the standout highlight.

"There’s this moment eternized by Pascal Maitre; 3 Equato-Guinean girls standing side by side after their first communion," Choker says of the inspiration behind Mono No Moto. "Each is wearing a white dress & a distinct pair of colored sunglasses. For months I would return to the photo to take whatever it gave, often textural ideas, an occasional melody or chord. Eventually the fragments came to be a whole & I had three projects sewn up, Mono No Moto being the first."

Beginning in March, Choker will also head out on a 13-show nationwide tour. The trek kicks off in San Francisco. Check out tickets and dates here.
