Just before the summer arrives The Land Below bursts with an enigmatic energy and treats us to some of his greatest work so far. From reworking those classic 90s tracks we still secretly hum along with during our morning coffee to this freshly finished new “It’s All Figured Out” EP.

In a 4-track therapy, The Land Below guides us through a process of dealing with loss. Losing love and loved ones.
Starting on a darker tone with “And On”, you get dragged along in figuring out on to go on, dealing with the memories with an eye on how to deal with the future ahead. Bathing in a dreamy glow, these songs will make you feel like waking up, 1 track at the time on the soft meandering synths while the serene and unruffled vocals tell their story.
On “If You Want Love”, the centerpiece of the EP, where repressed feelings erupt and break through the surface, everything suddenly speeds up, making you look back, sad, but pushing you forward, injecting you with a sense of hope.[soundcloud url=”https://api.soundcloud.com/tracks/263304420″ params=”color=ff5500&auto_play=false&hide_related=false&show_comments=true&show_user=true&show_reposts=false” width=”100%” height=”166″ iframe=”true” /]
Although this EP was written with a heavy emotional head, the 4 tracks sends out an up-lifting vibe, an embracing sound, making clear once again, that music is the best cure to all our problems. And The Land Below‘s dream pop does the job like no other!
