Charismatic Welsh singer-songwriter Rachel K Collier presents her debut self-produced EP ‘Words You Never Heard’ on the effervescent Love & Other imprint. Swinging between styles of indie, house & experimental pop, Rachel brings an emphatic mix of honest, high-quality headphone cuts each with their own distinct flavor.
Relating to themes of love and disconnection, the ‘Nothing Is Forever’ collaboration with DJ S.K.T boasts a clean-cut combination of gentle downtempo house with swooning vocals and a heart-rending melody, whilst jazz keys and bouncing bass pave the way before ‘Moth’ is formed upon a motif of temptation.
Next up is title track ‘Words You Never Heard’, a weightless symphony of love and emotion exploring a statement of intent with its impassioned vocal reverberation, conveying cyclical guitar and synth themes with an offbeat percussive headspace. Meanwhile ‘Squares Into Circles’ sets a grooving, full-bodied bassline under a rich and sultry vocal performance.
An EP loaded with symbolism, meaningful references an impressive range of sonics.
