On EP4, Praises pushes beyond their recent industrial synth-based offerings, incorporating the intensity of their highly regarded live performances with an intimate, collaborative, and distanced songwriting process. EP4 was composed as a combination of two songs that never felt like they had a home until they were met with two new tracks formed in collaboration with producer, DJ, and performer Shortbloom (aka Sachin Mohindra). In this “grueling time of human reckoning,” the songs on EP4 grew slowly and reflective. This first single, “A World On Fire” digs into themes of mortality, identity and love with Crowe fusing these ideas with his brand of dark, introspective electronica.
Additional distanced players of the EP4 project include members of Chandra, Sauna, Blonde Elvis, For Jane, and Beliefs. The new tracks were mixed by long-time musical partner Josh Korody (BELIEFS, BREEZE) at Toronto’s Candle Studio and mastered by Heather Kirby at Dreamlands.
