We here at TMN have come to the conclusion that the Aussie’s know a thing or two about music. Not only have they cultivated their own genre of music (ADM), but they continue to push production towards a more forward thinking level. One such artist that has caught the likes of our attention is 19-year-old Brisbane native, Callan Alexander, or as we know him, cln. After stumbling upon his SoundCloud, we instantly became drawn to his style of music and his ability to capture our attention at the drop of a beat.
Well ninjas, we are extremely happy to announce the premiere of his debut EP, Sideways. The EP contains 5 tracks in which each song tells a story in and of itself through cln’s intricate style of production. Last month he released the lead single, “Better Than”, and received an overwhelming response from people all over the world. We are stoked to have been apart of that particular mass of people to have come across this extremely talented producer and felt the dire need to share his artistry with all of you.
The Sideways EP has spoken something extremely rare to us and coming from a team of experts who have such a dellectable taste in music, there aren’t too many artists at cln’s age that have made us rethink everything about the external world around us like he has. His sound resonates the type of vibe that only the introverted mind can truly wrap their minds around and understand the story that each song tells us. Cln is approaching the classic Aussie style of production in an entirely different way when compared to the big dogs in the game like Flume, What So Not, L D R U, Kilter, Yahtzel, and many more. In all honesty, cln has the knowledge, the skills, and the emotive tie to music that sets him apart from these guys and we could not be any more excited for what he has in store for us now that his career is taking off.
So before you press play and zone out into a new dimension of thought, we suggest that you go sit outside and soak in the ray of sunshine that permeates every barrier that lie within you. Let the entirety of this EP take you on a journey towards a more elevated state of mind and feel each song in their organic form. We promise you’ll come back to reality with clarity, peace, and a rejuvenated soul to get you through the rest of the week. So as we welcome all of you music fanatics to the enchanting side of the world, just know that we wouldn’t want to introduce you to this side of the spectrum with anyone else but cln. Cheers, ninjas!
