Following his previous singles ‘Lie‘ and ‘Find‘, which have quickly amassed in excess of 25 million collective streams, D.C-based artist shallou has shared the final single to be taken from his forthcoming EP ‘Souls‘ (out 27th April). ‘Vignette‘ finds him in fine form, combining his dreamy echoey vocals with an earworm melody and gentle, driving electronica. Per his previous releases, ‘Vignette‘ is accompanied by a beautiful visual to populate his Nomad Series, directed by Jordan Taylor Wright (Founder and Director at Taylor Cut Films) – watch it here.
The ‘Souls‘ EP (pre-order here) is set for release on 27th April, expanding shallou’s ever-evolving artistic vision beyond debut EP ‘All Becomes Okay‘ (May 2017). See tracklist below:
2. You and Me
3. Find x Kasbo x Cody Lovaas
5. … Lost
6. Lie x RIAH
With over 60 shows under his belt, and many more to come, shallou will continue his rigorous touring throughout 2018. Stay tuned for news of European shows to come soon.
