The EP is a great introduction to both artists if you are unfamiliar with their prior music, while also showing a different side of each artist’s normal style. Drex’ approach is more laid back and less lyrical than his older music and Kkami’s hybrid instrumentals on this one lean a bit more in the indie scene compared to his older drops. Tune in above now.

Which I feel can be a common feeling after college, at least for me because it’s been such a transformative time where I sometimes haven’t really figured out what I want out of something,” when speaking about her relationships which have inspired the single and the entire EP. This one is a must-listen!
