shallou Blows Us Away With Extra Chill New EP ‘Souls’

shallou souls

Nearly half a year has come and gone since mesmerizing producer, musician and vocalist shallou shared “You and Me,” a single that found strength in its tenderness, in November 2017. This landed as the first song off his impending Souls EP, with “Lie,” “Find” with Kasbo and “Vignette” following. Now Souls is finally here, and it was definitely worth the wait.

Three new songs come with the project’s release including title track “Sigh” and closing track “Skin,” with each one adhering to a theme that’s simultaneously delicate and captivating. Although four of the seven songs were previously released, hearing each one come together from start to finish is a reward in itself.

From the simplistic song titles to each meticulously placed piece of production, instrumentals and vocals throughout, it’s not hard to see why shallou picked this name for his project. In the way that all great music does, each tiny piece of this puzzle gives listeners a glimpse into a world entirely new, a momentary place to get lost in. Each song itself is a small but mighty individual – a soul in its own right. Souls is packed with variety; from the gently building progressions of “Sigh” to the surprisingly dominant, shuffling percussion on “…Lost,” it’ll keep you invested from start to finish. Check it out below and enjoy!

Petit Biscuit's Presence album was one of our favorites from last year, and his single "Problems" featuring Lido was undoubtedly one of the highlights off the project. Now rising artist shallou has placed his magic touch on the original for a brand new remix.

shallou Shares Stunningly Smooth New Indie Electronic Single “Vignette” Off Upcoming ‘Souls’ EP

Shallou Vignette

With releases that blend both touching vocals and downright radiant production, shallou has become an easy favorite here at TSIS. His music blends everything we love about the electronic and indie genres, resulting in a bright signature captured in recent releases like “Find” with Kasbo, “Lie” and “You and Me.”  Today shallou is back once again with “Vignette,” an impressive release that features both his own production and, for one of the first times, his own vocals.

While still sounding fresh, “Vignette” mirrors so many of shallou’s releases in that it emanates serenity. From the first second of the track when a hollow, faraway vocal melody slips through the speaker, a tiny weight is lifted from your shoulders. Each featherlight layer of the song blends seamlessly into the next, from the vocals to the beat to the glowing synth chords. What results is really that of a vignette: a brief but powerful piece of music that takes us somewhere entirely different.

“Vignette” lands as track four off of shallou’s upcoming Souls EP, set for release on April 27.  After hearing this, we can’t wait to hear what the vibrant artist has in store. Check it out below and enjoy!
