Eli Smart has shared his much-awaited second EP, ‘Aloha Soul’.
Having transformed his childhood bedroom in Kaua’i into a studio, Eli teamed up with producer Gianluca Buccellati to create the surf-rock enthused five-track EP. The full release has been teased throughout the year, with the rasping, soulful ‘AM to PM’ dropping back in March to a great deal of excitement. The Hawaii-hailing via Liverpool artist’s EP also features recent single, ‘B-Side’.
On the EP, Eli shares: “It was a weird combination of escaping through music, while hopefully addressing some shit through it.”
The EP release finds Eli fresh from a launch show at London’s Sebright Arms earlier this week, after a jam-packed touring schedule throughout the year which saw him supporting the likes of STONE and Cassia amongst others. He also recently dropped an ‘Aloha Soul Summer Visual’ for ‘See Through’, which you can watch in all its sun-tinged glory below.

2. AM to PM
