The EP’s first track, “About You,” was released as the EP’s late single in late 2018. It features a deceptively simple melody and a delectable groove paired with powerful chord progressions and soulful vocals for six minutes of brilliant, raw emotion. By contrast, “Gone Girl” takes on a darker persona, building layer after layer of minor-key synth riffs to a black crescendo.

The EP’s final track, “Patchwork,” keeps the minor key but tones down the chaos ever so slightly, giving us a more meditative turn on Tinlicker’s progressive house that features an unexpected syncopated rhythm alongside bold cascading arpeggios.
If you’re looking for some brilliant progressive to kick off your 2019, look no further than Tinlicker’s About You. Give it a listen below and keep an eye on this duo–you never know what they’ll dream up next.
