The first track on the EP is the self-titled single “Hope” featuring Oliver, a feel good record with an uplifting one line vocal, supported by a house infused high-hat to snare pattern that you can’t help but bob your head to.
“Spiritism,” the second single on the EP, has a timeless flashback to the ‘80s vibe reminiscent of the band A Flock Of Seagulls. Alex Metric’s funky synth pad, backed by innovative spacey instrumentals makes for a tune you can play on high volume and your parents won’t mind a bit!The third and final track on the EP is another collaboration with Oliver called “Galaxy.” This is a funky little number with a pulsating melody embellished with a bouncy bassline and wide ranging synth progressions. “Galaxy” absolutely screams disco!
