Hot on the heels of one of my favorite EPs of the spring – may she prosper, Swedish jack-of-all-trades LIOHN returns with the sequel to his hit, Blue Pt. 1, with Blue Pt. 2 – a continuation of the story where it left off. The former floats somewhere in the realm of electro-pop, highlighted by upbeat and sensual tones. Yet, we feel a bit melancholic after listening to Pt. 2 – the track mixing somber undertones with a bouncing instrumental line (honestly, perfect for a live show).
Says LIOHN: “They [Pt. 1 and Pt. 2] are how I interpret intimacy in different stages. The first one more appealing with a higher energy while the other one is more complex, dealing with a wider range of emotions.”
LIOHN’s versatility is clear, and his songwriting mastery confirmed. We certainly look forward to what else is in store for this young talent.
Blue Pt. 2 is out now on Refune music.
