Brooklyns Charles Bordeaux is back on Emerald & Doreen with his new EP. Heres what he says: No More Thorns is about letting gosomething I've often struggled with as an artist as I'm always trying to remain "on brand" to a sound. With this EP the process was much more organic. I created without direction. The lyrics were all written in one night telling stories with silly undertones and nostalgic cantor. Each track is full of lush sounds ranging from homemade samples a piano from 1920 with Ivory keys whistling scats midi instruments and vocal howls. The results: a beautiful minialbum made of selfmade samples LoFi beats imperfect mixingand that's what I think makes it enjoyable.
