The EP, full of upbeat melodies and soulful vocals, as well as some top class production, had one aim when Halo was writing it – enjoying all the many positives in life in a world which can be focussed on the negative. As Halo puts it himself:
‘Everyday is somebody’s birthday so there’s always a reason to turn the music up’.
However, in spite of the positive aims, this isn’t a sugary take on the urban genre, and Halo’s sound has a solid, grounded feel to it. For a taste of what he’s about check out ‘Think About Me’ taken from the EP here: https://soundcloud.com/itshalomusic/halo-think-about-me-1
Halo is also not new to the music business. His career until now has already seen him working on previous projects supporting the likes of Ludacris and receiving support from across the board, including from poles apart tastemakers Tim Westwood and Tom Robinson. He also featured on an unreleased Leona Lewis track, which goes to show he isn’t starting from scratch in a music industry which is often difficult to break.
But with this new EP, Halo is taking that reputation in the industry, and looking to build on it. Keep your eyes peeled for a new video on the way too, with a new clip in development for EP opening track ‘Think About Me’.
