Ruben Dawnson’s debut EP, ‘Echo Emotions’ brings with it the single, ‘Still Moving’. “It’s that gentle reminder that even through all the worries and challenges, you’re sill here and you’re still moving.”
“This is a very special and introspective project for me,” added Ruben, “a product of reflections and thoughts built over several years. Itʼs about confronting your true self, learning and acknowledging your inner fears, struggles, issues… honesty and fear. Learning to be honest. realizing itʼs okay to tell people. Opening up. Discovering new sides of yourself. Lessons. change. Growth yet stillness. Itʼs raw, direct and as honest as it can be. Fear, mortality, loss, loneliness, anxiety, sexuality – hope and love. This is the truest expression of me in my moments of existence.”
Ruben’s lyrical versatility and depth is heady and full of reason and beauty. Added to his impeccable production of his music, the arrangement hits with gorgeous pop moves and artistic avant-garde edges.
With consistently solid songwriting, the young Norwegian explores the perils of anxiety, loneliness and fear, but through all that emotional fire, Ruben’s hazy and introspective pop project is a coming-of-age growth and decadence.
‘Echo Motion’ the EP is a beautiful experience, indeed. It’s out now. Listen.
