Premiere: Stream Tasmanian producer Calypso's impressive debut, self-titled EP
A diverse and full first body of work from the emerging producer.
A couple of weeks back we first came across Tasmania-based producer Calypso and her latest single, Numbered, a driving slice of disco that echoed artists like Robyn and World's End Press. And today we're very excited to share the full EP from which that track comes, an assured debut release from an artist we can very easily see following the footstops of fellow Tassie-based songstress Asta. The Calypso features older and newer songs, which shows in the four-tracker's variety but makes the release feel more complete. At times thumping indie-disco (Numbered), at times gentler electronica (When Love Don't Feel Right) - it's a killer first release from Calypso, who had this to say on the EP:
"I suppose the main themes behind the EP would be growth and change…whether that’s within a relationship or within oneself. I think it’s a reflection on how life is constantly moving, and you have to adapt to your surroundings and learn how to survive through the changes. The EP is also about the push and pull of love, how we can connect with other people and how we can move apart from one another as well. I hope the EP can take the listener on a bit of a journey, as they connect and relate to the words and the music through their own personal experiences."
