Building off the early release, Bantum is back with the full EP for “New Leaf.” From top to bottom, the EP utilizes the diverse skill set Bantum has developed and channels it into energetic tracks. The EP opens with the title track that is a mix of pulsing synths and a funky bass guitar riff. The bass keeps rocking as the EP moves into “Give You Up,” a groover that calls on spacious pads and vocal samples to set the mood. Finally, “Stutter” closes it with a nice simple drum loop with complex piano work.
Bantum told us that “I had this constant image in my mind of going back to a club or a party while writing the record. It’s funny that these are arguably the most danceable and upbeat tracks I’ve written when there’s nowhere to go yet to let loose! It’s been cathartic to produce this record and I can’t wait to play it live someday. The title is a direct reference to how I feel about this, like I’m turning a new leaf sonically.”
