Who, or what, is Essex? At this point, your guess is as good as ours. All we have to go by is a quote from German author Heinrich Heine, “Where words leave off, music begins,” and a remix of
Clean Bandit’s Rather Be. So far, so good.
In contrast with Elephante’s uplifting big room remix (another favorite of mine), Essex slows down the tempo, allowing for a more intimate listening experience. Progressive, feel-good vibes abound thanks to driving percussion, poignant piano play, and crowd-pleasing handclaps, giving the vocals a chance to breathe and get their point across. It’s a hell of an introduction to the new artist; we can’t wait to hear the next release.
