Burgeoning creative force Boku returns with a highly-anticipated ‘Fortune’ EP. The Irish talent provided fans with a sneak peek of what to expect earlier this month with his lead single ‘Fortune’. Out now on Feel Good Lost, the 3-track offering is available to listen to across all streaming platforms.
‘Meandering’, begins with an audibly mellow tone, featuring the light playing of a piano alongside contemplatively entrancing ambient production elements. The tune effortlessly evokes a sense of awe and crepuscularity, as if one is just waking up in the early hours of the morning to an abundance of nature whilst letting their mind meander.
‘Enough For Now’ showcases the innovative producer’s eclectically solid production prowess. Atmospherically enticing, the shimmering original production places a strong emphasis on sound and its calming effect, with a shiny melody carrying the track’s restrained energy throughout its duration with ease.
The lead single ‘Fortune’ rounds out the release, replete with dreamy synths and an upbeat ambiance. Discombobulated, heady vocal chops are once again introduced, this time alongside a more propulsive, lively beat. Infectiously pensive from start to finish, it’s clear that Boku effectively designed his latest opus with the sole intent to relax and calm the listener’s mind, essentially presenting a sonic respite from the harshness of reality.
‘This EP was a very healing project for me and the track order of the EP plays out in the same order that it was written. It was me prevailing through a difficult time. We can all get lost at some stage and you have to work to reclaim your purpose. These tracks really helped me to refind mine.’ – Boku
