Review | Henry Green – Slow EP (2015)

Zrzut ekranu 2015-06-10 o 20.36.57Henry Green dropped out an EP recently and it’s a freaking amazing release. On the 4-piece album you can find a range of sounds and emotions, from slower jams of the first single, ‘Slow’, spacey and reflective vibes of ‘Barcelona’ and ‘Holding On’, to heavenly and a little deathly feelings on ‘Do You Know’.

In general, this EP is very samey, but it’s a good thing — it creates an unusual atmosphere, just like The xx’s previous (unforgettable) releases, and I feel like Slow EP could have a similar impact on the listeners; at least that’s how it works in my case. Plus, a bit of melancholy is something always very welcome in my ears.

The EP was released June 1st and you can order it right here. Well, I was not planning on reviewing it, but it happened, the music led me to it; that means I must have deeply fallen in love with Green’s sound. I already bought it and I’m not ashamed to say that I can’t wait to sit on my porch today evening and listen to this masterpiece.

I wish I could go to the EP launch party in London – if you happen to be in the neighbourhood, go and tell Henry hi from me!
