You may recall we recently debuted “A Better Place, Pt1“, the first track from Manchester-based one-man project Ares One‘s second EP. Titled Optimist, it’s due to drop over the weekend – but you, our lucky readers, can get your ears around it early with an advance stream of the record, available below.
Adding to opening track “A Better Place, Pt1“, the full tracklist is as follows:
01. A Better Place, Pt 1
04. The Precipice
05. A Better Place, Pt 2
Inspired by the likes of fellow Brit Sithu Aye and German project Fortiori, Reece’s second EP sees him finding his feet a little more, having found his sound on his debut; the atmosphere that pervades the release is, in response to the negativity of the world, what it says on the tin; more optimistic – without being too saccharine, which is quite important.
Optimist releases this Sunday February 18th, and you can pick up a copy via Bandcamp!
