Thoughts:

The anonymous UK music collective Sault released two highly regarded albums in 2020, Untitled (Black Is) and Untitled (Rise), and then Nine in 2021 which was only available to stream for 99 days (I missed it!).  While their earlier releases were a mix of R&B, disco, and afrobeat with experimental touches, I’m not sure where to classify Air.  I guess it’s experimental orchestral and choral music.  Most of the songs have vocalizations but no actual lyrics.  It could be the score for a movie, or perhaps a ballet.  It’s definitely different from the pop mainstream of today!
