As his second album’s title suggests, Adem Ilhan likes using outer-space imagery to express his innermost doubts and desires. Love and Other Planets‘ rhythmically tricky acoustic arrangements showcase his soaring, sensitive-bloke vocals as he sings about starships and distant worlds; those pipes will come in handy if Coldplay ever needs a new frontman.
