Quite some time has passed since Seven Lions re-entered the electronic release ring with a new EP in hand, but with Find Another Way, the producer closes a more than one-and-a-half-year gap in this format. Sonically kaleidoscopic in its engagement of sub-genres such as psytrance, dubstep, and house, the melodically threaded follow up to 2018’s Start Again is evidence that Seven Lions’ uniquely emotive touch remains golden.
The assertive trance character of opening number, “Remember” sets a fervid tone for the tracks that ensue, each of which commands its own potency. Although the five songs that make up Find Another Way stylistically differ, with the mid-tempo, vocal-centric body of “Senseless” standing apart from the upbeat, psy-trance orientation of “Only Now,” for example, the hallmarks of a Seven Lions production, from rushing melodies to heavy-handed bass, are audible on all of the EP’s inclusions. Features include Au5, Crystal Skies, April Bender, HALIENE, and Tyler Graves.
