After releasing the initial single “Blue Moons Later” last week, Young IICE is back with his full-length, J’Von produced EP, MOON EP.

MOON EP acts as an extension of “Blue Moons Later.” The four track EP keeps its dream-like motif thanks to the decision to keep percussions muted in favor of snaps and the heavy use of hi-hats along with high ranging synths.
IICE uses the EP as a platform to talk about a relationship. While on “Blue Moons Later” we saw the ups and downs of a present relationship, the tracks “Glimpse” and “Chance” act as the prequels to that union. In “Glimpse feat. J’Von,” IICE meets a young lady, and it isn’t until “Chance” that things begin to progress. Once through “Blue Moons Later” we see the relationship coming to an end on “I Still Remember.”
MOON EP is an impressive project for the young Seattlean. Though it’s a relatively quick journey, Young IICE and J’Von make sure you enjoy the ride, every step of the way. With top-notch productions, excellent vocals, and a well thought out storyline, MOON EP is a great little record that proves IICE is on the rise.
Hopefully, this isn’t the last we see of these Seattle natives; they have a bright future ahead of them.
MOON EP is available on all streaming platforms, but you can also pick it up for free on his Bandcamp here. For all things dope music, you're already in the right place.
