The EP features five funk-fuelled tracks with soulful vocals, breakbeat rhythms and analogue synth lines. Its free-flowing percussion and upbeat party vibe is everything fans have come to expect from the Local Talk style.
“Round of Applause (Feat. Aleysha Lei)” opens the release with its broken beat groove and a feisty female vocal that’s underpinned by the slap and funk of the bassline.
