“Each track on the EP has its own melodic break which will have his effective effect on the drop”
EG: Can you tell us about your next release?
Thomas Evans: It’s a 3 track EP ‘Because I’m’ due out on We Are The Brave, Alan Fitzpatrick’s label. The title track, you will hear a powerful synth shot with percussions and vocal shots. ‘Mind & Soul’ is a more vocal track with male/female vocals and a deep synth stab. The third, ‘Believe’ contains an acid lead evolving all over the track. Each track on the EP has its own melodic break which will have his effective effect on the drop. I am really excited to be releasing on the label too, Alan has been a long time favorite artist of mine, so it’s an honor to be a part of the We Are The Brave roster.
