“Our time spent in California was inspiring. It was an amazing experience getting involved in a music scene outside of our own,” MTNS said.
“These songs reflect the joining of our histories and differences. Through the process of building this EP we’ve learned a lot about collaboration in music and experienced first-hand its power to bring people together,” MTNS said.
“A big part of our new development was experimenting with sounds and attempting to bring the ‘live, natural and band feel’ to the electronic scene. Our first songs were all based 100% on the computer, so it was great to get out of the box and manipulate natural elements by blending them with the electronic sounds,” MTNS said.
Two new songs on this EP are “Aes Sedai” and “Like A Stone”, each rounding out a cohesive pop-electronic vibe. There’s angst and drama across the four tracks, which hit you hard and strike with every synth clash.
This newfound sonic direction for MTNS is a promising step forward in establishing themselves as major players in the music space, and will hopefully inspire others to follow suit.
“Our hope is that anyone listening to our music will feel inspired to create and connect in the same way we have,” MTNS said.
