Soul Bandit – Alone In Life, Together In Death EP

Los Angeles based DJ / producer Soul Bandit graces us today with her first official EP release, Alone In Life, Together in Death which fittingly has dropped on Halloween. This collection of 4 tracks may only be just over 10 minutes long but in that time it takes you on quite the emotional ride as Soul Bandit tries to give you some perspective into where her mind goes when she’s making music.

Soul Bandit had this to say about her projects name:
The title of the EP is as morbid as you interpret it to be. I frequently think about how, despite surrounding ourselves with people, we essentially spend our entire lives alone. We are left to our own devices trying to express our thoughts, feelings, and our individual identities through words and actions. But unfortunately, no one will ever be in our minds with us to truly understand who we are and the realities that we are experiencing. But if we live – regardless of the life we live – we must all eventually experience a death. And death is simply that – death, no matter how you look at it. We’re no longer present in this plane of existence, in human form, and that’s all we know. That’s all we can agree on. Everyone looks at a corpse as a corpse, and the corpse thinks nothing at all.

So, alone in life, together in death.
 
However, this EP was intended to be a representation that the end of the life cycle and post-death experience may be a beginning to something new rather than solely an ending. I think of everything as cyclical and although we don’t fully understand death, it’s comforting to think about it as just another bizarre chapter of life. I know it’s a rather cryptic message, considering the EP is all over the place in terms of genre, but existence, in general, is strange, confusing, and all over the place, so I felt it was only fitting.”
 
While it’s obvious that Soul Bandit’s sound has a pop edge to it, it doesn’t take much to hear that her lyrics and tone are simply her vehicle of choice for her vibe and message. There is something a bit off and creepy about this music and I think that’s why I love it the most. The fact that she’s producing and signing vocals on these songs is also impressive and as Soul Bandicontinuesue to fine-tune her craft and evolve, I think we will hear some very special music from her as she continues to push these releases out.
For now, Alone In Life, Together In Death is a great start for this promising young talent and it’s surely worth a listen or two on the scariest day of the year.
