Romance is Dead, Good Riddance states the title of Rusty Hook's forthcoming EP and the leadoff single, "Relief" seems to reflect the pre-Romance is Dead sentiment. The France-native and 1/6 of Slow Hours have been shaping and mastering his major solo release for the past year and with the help of Moving Castle, listeners can get a taste of what's to come next month when it drops.
"Relief" is a love letter to those intoxicating feelings of being with your significant other, even if no one else understands. Featured artist duo Truitt hone in on that stars-in-your-eyes dreamy vibe through their vocals and such lyrics as, "I forget about who's around / Eyes drawn to the shape of your mouth". Rusty Hook showcases his love of hip-hop and French electronic music through a blend of trap-focused drum beats and heavy synths. With this track as a teaser for what's to come, his upcoming EP will be one you shouldn't sleep on.
