A strong sense of identity stands tall throughout, and while the EP is surprisingly eclectic, it holds close to these inherent, creatively interesting values.
The UK’s own Dr LK kicks off the summer early with the dance anthem that is Inna Yuh Party.
Back with another quickly impressive collaborative effort, OpenSoul’s latest single Good Time is a brilliantly anthem-like, energizing and summer-soaked hit that proves increasingly likable as it pours through.
Melodically more fluid and complex than a first listen betrays, Our New Plan plays with texture in subtle ways, with keys and guitar and percussion swapping prominence throughout the track, with a warm bass line providing energy and heart throughout.
There’s a certain passionate depth to the writing, and the featured singer handles and presents this with an air of realness. Behind the vocal though, the soundscape is decidedly complex, unexpectedly detailed and multi-layered to the point that you can pick up something new with each revisit.
