Careful with the volume control, Shines leaves no frequency unturned in this debut EP. And don’t thumb around the tracks for proof, just press play into the intro for a stunning sonic landscape, a loud high-pitched flickering that screams “I’m here” just before melting into a layered downtempo gem in ‘Heartstrung.’ Created in complete privacy over a span of nearly a year by experimental musicsmith, Jafar Jahanshahi, this self-titled EP is inherently personal, and equally unpredictable. The darkness is deep and yet you won’t finish this abbreviated journey without a laid-back summer listen. Warm synths, intuitive sound imaging and captured noises of the neighborhood via field recordings all help to create the absorbing soundscapes. Experience the music’s emotions and be encouraged—this journey is only the beginning.
Music: oxygen, rhythm & bounce, textured synth, experimental, alt pop, soul, endurance, pigeon-free. Color: artist-owned, mahogany, grind, Earl Grey, gratitude, community, the future.
