Ravenscoon’s newest independent EP Rapid Eye Movements is a collection of songs sure to keep you awake at night with its sound, curation and themes centered around dreams. Spanning four tracks composed in the same key and tempo, Rapid Eye Movements creates a sense of unity in its compositional uniformity.
“Nystagmus” kicks off the EP featuring vocal samples from the movie “Walking Life,” thematically representing the notion of being awake in your dreams, but asleep in walking life. With the introduction of rebounding bass, the balance of the EP features a riveting energy that carries through the duration. The second track on the EP, “Showin' Out” is peppered with spiraling crescendos, resounding bass lines, and otherworldly vocals followed by the namesake track of the EP “Rapid Eye Movements”. Perfectly flowing from its predecessor, the track introduces a breath of fresh air after the commotion of the previous two tracks. Rounding out the EP with a collaboration with CASHFORGOLD, "Awake” sees buttery vocals paired with Ravenscoon's signature low-tempo percussion. The closing song takes the listener through oscillating bass and euphoric melodies that contrast as well as compliment the other.
