Seven Lions: Worlds Apart EP
The Worlds Apart EP from one of dance music's leading innovators, Seven Lions, goes beyond just being a typical collection of songs as it is a truly astonishing work of art with emotional depth that is undeniably apparent at first listen. Boasting collaborations with world-class vocalists such as Ellie Goulding and Kerli, Seven Lions manifests the music that resonates within his soul through his eclectic and ethereal brand of electronica.
Seven Lions doesn't waste any time in setting a strong tone for his EP by opening up with his gripping collaboration with Ellie Goulding. In "Don't Leave," he weaves layered melodies, a silky bass line, and Goulding's addictive vocals together with both a downtempo feel, and a fresh trance-leaning rush of energy that makes for an staggering piece.
Next up is the EP's title track, "Worlds Apart" with Kerli, that dives deeper into his new sounds and brings a balance of elegance and bass-heavy synth work, while Kerli rounds out the song with thought-provoking lyrics. The only instrumental on the release, "Nepenthe," follows suit with a darker vibe, but Seven Lions utilizes dynamic rhythms, a massive, growling synth, and gorgeous lead melodies to ensure that it can easily stand alone.
