One of dance music’s leading innovators, Seven Lions, announces his highly anticipated Worlds Apart EP due out on Tuesday, April 29th via Casablanca Records, while also releasing the EP’s captivating trailer video. The EP includes the smash hit ‘Strangers‘ with Myon & Shane 54 and breakout buzz artist Tove Lo.
The EP goes beyond just being a typical collection of songs as it is a truly astonishing work of art with emotional depth that is undeniably apparent at first listen. Boasting collaborations with world-class vocalists such as Ellie Goulding and Kerli, Seven Lions manifests the music that resonates within his soul through his eclectic and ethereal brand of electronica.
Seven Lions doesn’t waste any time in setting a strong tone for his Worlds Apart EP by opening up with his gripping collaboration with Ellie Goulding. In “Don’t Leave,” he weaves layered melodies, a silky bass line, and Goulding’s addictive vocals together with both a downtempo feel, and a fresh trance-leaning rush of energy that makes for an staggering piece. Next up is the EP’s title track, “Worlds Apart” with Kerli, that dives deeper into his new sounds and brings a balance of elegance and bass-heavy synth work, while Kerli rounds out the song with thought-provoking lyrics. The only instrumental on the release, “Nepenthe,” follows suit with a darker vibe, but Seven Lions utilizes dynamic rhythms, a massive, growling synth, and gorgeous lead melodies to ensure that it can easily stand alone.
Next on the EP, the hit song “Strangers” with Myon & Shane 54 and Tove Lo, is the intersection of Seven Lions’ electronic influences with the combination of its unexpected half-time breakdown and euphoric trance sequences. The last song on the release, “Keep It Close” with Kerli, then sends fans off with its spine-chilling, cinematic arrangement and fantasy-like story. With this major release, Seven Lions begins anew to reach the hearts of new and old fans, while building a universe of his own.
