Respected producer, singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Elderbrook is set to round off the summer with his biggest body of original work to date; the 7 track ‘Talking’ EP is available now.
The deluxe EP is a culmination of the many styles that have influenced Alexander Kotz over the course of his career. Moving through various moods and subgenres, it still contains his inimitable vocals and overarching sense of feeling that have come to characterise the Elderbrook sound.
The first single to come from the full-length production, ‘Woman’, was released earlier in August. The laid back pace is matched with pitched-down chopped vocals, contrasting with the wistful lyrics. It’s produced by Craven J, but exemplifies Kotz’s unique approach to being a singer and a producer; “phonetics are as important as lyrics. My voice adds another percussive element to the sounds.”
Packed full of material that will please both existing Elderbrook fans and convert the uninitiated, each track on the EP feels strong enough to be a standalone single in its own right. Despite the diversity of styles on show, the EP also works as a body of work overall thanks to the distinctive, ever evolving ‘Elderbrook sound’ that ties each track together. ‘Talking’ cements Kotz’ status as one of the most innovative, undeniably multitalented young producers on the rise right now.
