MYRNE has released his Astralwerks debut EP, Circles, a seamless reinvention of his approach to melody, texture and composition. The four-track EP radiates joy and restoration in 2022. Listen to it now below.
Circles marks MYRNE’s first collection of songs since 2020’s Wandering. The EP was conceived as he attempted to find stillness in his home studio amongst the turmoil of the outside world. The work continued as he began reconnecting with friends and family, regaining a sense of optimism along the way.
MYRNE took charge of songwriting and vocals on all tracks, making for his most personal release to date. “It’s helped me find my sound as an artist and work with the things I like, so that when I’m able to collaborate, I can be a bit more centered.” MYRNE explained.
“It was all about being mechanical, touching knobs, humming sounds, instead of planning and sculpting in such detail,” he continued, speaking on the creative songwriting on the EP. “You can really hear it in the music – a bit of it sounds unfinished – because I don’t think there really is a point to ‘finishing’ music, just making sure it sounds good then moving on to the next one. I’ve also learned to have a lot of fun ‘in the moment’.”
