EMBRZ finds dance music is ‘Back Where We Belong’ on newest This Never Happened EP
EMBRZ‘s second This Never Happened EP of the calendar has officially been completed. Across the latter half of the summer, EMBRZ had been gradually putting the pieces together to Back Where We Belong—the follow-up to Don’t Look Back, which landed earlier in the year. And as the dates to his looming North American tour‘s starting point crept closer in August, he knew it was only right to supplement it with a flare of new music.
Further lengthening his post-Moments era, Back Where We Belong picks up where EMBRZ left off on Don’t Look Back. Already doing so on both Moments and Don’t Look Back, EMBRZ continued to flesh out the singer-songwriter wing of his artistry on the EP’s opener—”Let Me In”—something he still found himself to be unsure of. But after contemplating whether or not another vocalist would be more suitable in the end, he ultimately made the wise decision once more to maintain that extra layer of authenticity on his productions. Also preceded by “All The Lights” with bailey—which EMBRZ built around bailey’s vocal after receiving a vocal demo—Back Where We Belong sees two beautifully named tracks join the four-sided EP on release day, with “Warm Hug Waves”—sounding as lush as one would imagine—and “Finally We’re Here”—a direct nod to the EP’s title—adding to the release’s all-embracing appeal of melodic house that wholeheartedly stands out amongst a crowded field. And the EP itself is named just as fittingly as all four cuts, with EMBRZ going on to explain that it’s an obvious reference to the “connection from live shows” that had remained a void in dance music the past couple of years.
