U.K.-based artist, Robin Plays Chords, just delivered their new EP, "Unmasking". This is a dynamic new release that takes you on quite the wild 5-track ride. Refusing to stick to one genre, this release is a roller-coaster of emotion that deserves more than just one listen through. In fact, this is such a unique release that you'll most likely find yourself leaving it on repeat to experience the journey over and over.
Soothing elements encapture you with soft instrumentals and melodic vocal flows, and just when you think you've figured out the sound, you might get smashed with big distorted guitars and crashing drums. While the overall vibe of these 5 tracks feels similar, Robin Plays Chords really shines here by crafting unique transitions to pull different emotions from each song. Ripping guitars are a common theme through the EP, weaving in and out of a shoegaze-style instrumental. Heartfelt lyricism drives the release home, and from there you're left wanting more. That's exactly what an EP is supposed to do.
It's always refreshing for us to hear something new. We receive a lot of music, so when a release comes to us as unique as this, it's something that reminds us that the alternative music scene is far from gone. We can't wait to see what they have planned next, and we're sure any fan of this style will feel the same way.
You can check out the EP in its entirety below. We also added a couple of tracks to our Underground Indie & Alternative playlist on Spotify. If you like what you hear, make sure to follow Robin Plays Chords so you can stay on top of future releases. Enjoy!
