Indie singer-songwriter/producer Goosechase recently announced his debut EP Labor of Love, which was released on February 14th. The EP, which melds a wide range of genres from indie-pop to acoustic ballads and upbeat alternative jams, conveys the struggles we all face when we’re yearning for the ones we love or once loved.
Labor of Love’s title captures the essence of the EP in three short words, boiling down the four tracks into a singular meaning. This self-produced EP is an essential listen for someone going through a rough relationship on Valentine’s Day, and we’d love to work with Desert Island Cloud for an interview, article, review, or feature of any kind.
Labor of Love is a fantastic introduction to Goosechase’s sonic vision, marking a unique step forward, and the beginning of an exciting new chapter. Goosechase describes his sound as “sad, with just a hint of optimism,” pouring out his earnest love for someone that may not be able to reciprocate the same affection, but doing it anyway.
Fans of artists as diverse as Tame Impala, Mac Demarco, Tyler the Creator, Nick Drake, Elliott Smith, Radiohead, Gilbert O’Sullivan, The Strokes, or The National might certainly connect with Goosechase’s debut EP. His incredibly diverse sound allows him to branch out into different creative directions and endlessly experiment with his music. The charismatic singer-songwriter manages to combine stunning melodies with infectious grooves and beats, in order to create a catchy, yet direct and edgy sound.
