Globally-known producer, Rezz, is moving towards a darker, punk-inspired sound for her new EP appropriately titled, It’s Not A Phase. Since she began creating music almost ten years ago, she has been very open about the influence that punk culture has had on her own musical journey. 

The first single off of the EP,  “Blue In The Face,” starts off sounding industrial with heavy electric guitars. fknsyd’s soft, low vocals are layered on top of the hard instrumental with Rezz’s signature spooky chimes and clanking in the background. Shadient and Rezz are both constantly pushing the boundaries of electronic music, experimenting with bass and different tempos. 

“Blue In The Face” follows her brooding single, “Suffer in Silence,” released last month. Just like the newest single, “Suffer in Silence” is a moody, mid-tempo song. The pair are preparing listeners for what is coming from Rezz, as she changes her sound with her newest drops. 

In regards to It’s Not a Phase, Rezz tweeted, “Every single track on this Ep is completely different from one another but the common theme is goth & having an evil tone.” So far, the two singles from the EP are fulfilling that promise, perfectly encapsulating the artist’s electronic style and a movement toward punk. 

fknsyd has worked with Rezz in the past, previously adding her vocals to “let me in” and “Sweet Dreams (Are Made Of This).” Shadient and Rezz have not teamed up in the past, but his experimental bass meshes perfectly with her own creations. “Blue In The Face” is an interesting and fresh song from both producers. 

Rezz is playing shows throughout the rest of the year, hitting Ubbi Dubbi, Red Rocks, VELD, and more until September. While we wait for the entire It’s Not A Phase EP, listen to  “Blue In The Face” here:
