FmSea’s Static EP is, to say the least, introspective in nature. Four tracks that tell the emotional tale of a young man’s struggles with his anxieties as he braces himself for adulthood and the end of his “teenage sense of invincibility”. In the 19 year old artist’s own words - “Static EP is a linear chronicle of my experiences since this anxiety became a part of my life.”
As a result, the scope of sounds heard on Static EP is quite varied. With a clear penchant for UK bass and I.D.M., FmSea’s more ambient, sporadically percussed productions, deliver a truly impressive control of his creative edge - minimal and properly spaced. On the flip side, his more accessible production, Tattered Sheets (featuring live unsampled vocals from Sophie Katz), takes a lighter turn - letting go of the more experimental tendencies to create a song (rather than a production) - thoughtful, melodic and righteously executed.
FmSea’s Static EP - “a snapshot of time, a static object that I could hold on to and would never change.”
