SG Lewis knows a thing or two about setting the mood, and his new EP, Shivers, is a testament to this undeniable fact. The four-track release showcases the producer’s knack for constructing dreamy electronic soundscapes. On the EP’s title-track, Lewis enlists the help of JP Cooper, whose velvety smooth vocals float above a bed of lush atmospherics and warm piano keys.
Not to be outdone, Louis Mattrs makes a guest appearance on the EP’s opening track “No Less,” an equally mesmerizing tune that blends pillowy synths with a smooth acoustic guitar. On this track, the balance of power and restraint is in full effect, making for an impossibly relaxing tune. But that’s only the half of it.
On the EP’s remaining two tracks, “Absent” and “Lighter,” Lewis lets his musical chops speak for themselves. Both instrumental tracks further the producer’s cause while adding to the cohesive vision of the record. As it’s name would suggest, this EP will give you shivers in all the right places.
