As summer draws to its natural conclusion Afterlife celebrates the occasion with this latest EP. The heady title track sees the warm expanse of the season stretched out over gentle pulses of drums, alongside jazzy reflections multiplying keys of all shapes and sizes. Next, FOU adds a Jamaican flavour to its rhythms offset this time by a twist of melted electrical impulse. To See You Again then sets the pulses racing as introspective improvisation gathers up a wealth of emotions, while the equally wonderful The Quiet (co-written by Tudor Moore who incidentally also composed the sublime Blu Bar with Steve Miller) follows suite. Producing smoky, bluesy after dark adventures the charge of horn blasts alongside the compelling whir of atmospheric synthesizers elevates the escapade to the full. Code Red completes the treasure trove with a more playful bounce again channelling thoughts of Caribbean sunshine into the mix, although of course all via Afterlife’s inevitable charm and care of detail.
