Elusive electro-pop artist Stresshead has now shared his debut EP, ‘Sorry’, in full.
The full project arrived on November 25th following the vibrant but anxiety-ridden debut single ‘I Need U’, its moody follow-up, ‘Light Blue’, and last month’s final preview, ‘White Walls’.
Electro-pop newcomer Stresshead works within the catchy and formulaic structure of pop but pushes the genre to its extremes with alternative sounds that perpetually subvert expectations. This five-track offering surmises the tumultuous end of a creative era and the beginning of an exciting new one.
As the London-based artist declares: “‘Sorry’ is the culmination of a year of worry. Worrying about past mistakes, worrying about future possibilities. All reaching a fever pitch before realising the easiest thing to do is apologise and start again.”
“I’ve been sat on this project for a long time and couldn’t think of a name for it,” he told Dork in a recent Hype feature, which you can read in full here. “I recently realised that these songs represent not just a new era in terms of the music I’m making, but the end of an era for the place I lived, the friends I had there, and the relationships I held with those people. Reflecting on that, I feel like I owe those people an apology. I feel like I could’ve approached things differently, and this project sums up my feelings toward that era.”
