Last week phume the artist and Yolophonik came through and dropped their new collaborative Early Transcendentals EP as promised on all streaming platforms. This fresh body of work features the musical stylings of talented local producer, Yolophonik, whose hi-hats are said to be causing a stir in the South African Music Industry and some thrilling vocals/emotive strumming ooze from indie artist phume the artist, whose heart and soul is further said to be laid bare in every note he sings.
The EP has also been explained as having a contemporary indie-soul structure with hints of alternative pop that is very niche but easy to listen to. Music lovers who have a taste for 3-dimensional music can look forward to hearing, seeing, and feeling this EP. It is a beautiful ode to the excitement of starting something new and the call not to overthink the outcome.
The project itself could be seen as a way to encourage people to just make music. To not overthink whether is this going to be on a playlist or if this is going to top the charts. – Yolophonik
