City Park has been on my radar since their debut single ‘Holding Me High’ dropped in 2018. The duo just makes a brilliant brand of funky overseas soul that really just speaks to my taste. The Amsterdam duo kicked off 2020 with this brilliant EP Balance / Contrast that has been on repeat for me. The seven song set has a real sharp, soulful sound to it throughout full of punchy percussion, infectious guitar licks and milky synths. The standouts on the set are ‘Remedy’ and ‘Who I Am’ but you definitely need to let this entire project ride a few times.
