And, with Swedens finest also joining forces with Little Dragon for the track, it becomes all the more spectacular.
EYK – “Just For The Time”
There are a few tracks that singer Rhys Kirkby-Cox and producer Harvey Kirby revisited, like “Higher”, but the EP is mainly a reflection on the collective feelings inspired by lockdown. It’s a processing of what they, their close friends, and indeed all of us went through last year.
About the new EP, Rhys said, “sonically, you’ll still be able to tell its EYK, but it’s sharper. I feel like my vocals and lyrics have improved. Harvey would probably say his production’s improved. So as a body of work, tune for tune, this is by far the best project we’ve done”. He added, “It’s just completely laying ourselves bare and being vulnerable, you’ll be able to hear the different emotions in the project. It’s just honest music. There’s no facade there. However, we feel when we’re making this music, that’s what you’re hearing in each tune.”
Dylan – “Someone Else”
Olivia Rodrigo’s new twin, Dylan, also features on this weeks Wonderlist. The indie girl’s track “Someone Else” gets us all the way into our feels when projecting that her love interest loves someone else. And, what better way to express her confusion and obsession than in a vibrantly fused punk track. Offering melodic tones and a breathy angel voice, Dylan serves up a sound sure to have you instantly enchanted.
