'We Are Together' is the first of the three tracks, and its dramatic opening combines distinctive synth stabs with gospel style vocals that sing of unity and togetherness. Stripped back and filled with a swelling tension, this moody cut has a delightfully dark atmosphere.
Lifting the mood, 'Like A River' has a warm and uplifting vibe with shimmering pads and ethereal textures leading towards a spiritual breakdown that's both poetic and eloquent. Chic and timeless, this cut blends old school flavours with contemporary ideas
Finishing off the EP is 'Never Take The Easy Way', which is a melodic cut that's jerking groove is filled with trippy rhythms and glitchy textures. Finishing with a sprinkle of charisma, this magically understated piece of music is both quirky and brilliant.
