Bellevue by EisZ: EP Review
EisZ releases its debut 4-piece EP “Bellevue”, which is a combination of serene music and a southern French sophistication, combining different elements as well as a crisp production. Let’s dive into this chocolate-coated treat right away!
The first track, “Comes from the sun” opens the album like the lazy waves on a beautiful afternoon, when the birds are chirping to fly home. This song will fit right into your mid-day vacation mood, as you’re chilling by yourself away from the chaos. The jazzy soundscapes are much more nuanced in the title track, a nearly 2-minute song that’ll get you moving and ready for the evening beach party. The song comes to a halt with some brilliantly evocative work on the instrument. “Soprana” is a tad bit laid-back, with some strong lo-fi elements, some predictable, others not so much. The Mandelieu artist has done a brilliant job of introducing us to Freydier on Saxophone because I’ve never been so mesmerized. The last track features more of Jerome Dragin on the guitar, and the flow between a combination of everything that’s going on, including the clarinet is smooth, seductive, and beyond captivating.
My only complaint with “Bellevue”, and I think you’ll agree with me on it later, is that it ends way too soon! EisZ really knows how to hook the listeners, keeping them waiting for their next project.
