NURKO returns to the release radar with the 5-track ‘Arrival’ EP. The new offering comes alongside a 16-stop North American tour and follows up previous lead singles such as ‘Disappearing Now’ with Chandler Leighton, ‘Lost Without You’ with Crystal Skies and KnownAsNat, and ‘Spinnin’ Wheels’ with JT Roach.
The intro, ‘Arrival’, kicks off the EP with the faint rumbling of a thunderstorm, quickly followed by radio static and a chaotic amalgam of sounds. Eventually, certain stations can be heard warning of the arrival of something monumental, paired alongside a rising tension cinematic production.
‘Disappearing Now’ is next, and features a vocal courtesy of Leighton throughout its entirety. Bass drops, tone and lyricism characterise the majority of the track.
‘Lost Without You’ directly follows, and features additional production from DJ/production duo Crystal Skies. KnownAsNat lends her vocal abilities to the endeavor, infusing it with a flair that serves as an accompaniment to its ambiance.
The EP’s penultimate tune, ‘Spinnin’ Wheels’, features vocals from LA-based musician JT Roach, and is an example of both musicians’ at their best. Tension is crafted, followed up by a series of soundscapes and NURKO’s melodic bass sensibilities.
‘Breathing Again’ rounds out the EP with a vocal performance from Skye Silansky, a track with equal parts emotion and intensity.
Out now via Proximity, NURKO’s ‘Arrival’ EP is available to listen to across all streaming platforms.
