Erik Evy drops mellow 4-pack ‘Matinee’

By Damilola Grey

Chicago native, Erik Evy is back with his first project of the year, titled Matinee. The EP is graced by 4 tracks, showing fans a different side of Erik as well as a different sound. Matinee also marks the transition from Erik’s previous music to a much more matured, mellow sound.

Erik Evy takes a more vulnerable approach on this project, both in writing and delivery. The production is also very conservative, which gives the project a raw sound full of emotion. To add to the EP’s rawness, none of the songs have a hook and are strictly bars. Erik addresses various moments in his life on various tracks such as “Sunday Morning” where Erik has a form of soliloquy reminiscing about his first open mic, his battle with Corona, and the stress of settling down in a new place. Erik also talks about the bright side of life, not just for himself but for others, on “Promises”. When I talked to the Chicago native about the significance of the EP to him, he told me “It represents a change in mindset that I need to take everything more seriously if I want to take this to the next level”.

Erik Evy is well on his way to the next level with the release of this project. Check out ‘Matinee’ below:
