Release year 2015
3 tracks, 19 minutes

Lovely Electro Acoustic E.P. from Cork neo-classical project North Side Drive (Jonathan Pearson). Using piano and electronics, “Snow” is full of textures, clocking in at over ten minutes, and sets up the rest of the EP beautifully. A fast, staccato piano line slowly builds, with piano chords and electronics, falling into ambient noise; only for the piano line to re-emerge. “Sea” is a much more modern-classical melody, gentle, and leads the way to a more robust “Sky”.
