In my eyes, the function of an EP is meant to be a compact collection of music that informs listeners as to what direction an artist is moving on. There’s a reason the lack of length works as it offers a simple snapshot of a given artist’s capabilities, but even so, when done right, this kind of project can truly stand out as more than just a brief snapshot. In the case of Genshin’s latest EP, Distant, the impact is felt most clearly in the introduction of such a curious, alluring sonic atmosphere.
Throughout a quick 3 songs, he transports listeners into an entirely different world of sound, all the while evoking strong, almost nostalgic bouts of emotion that are both compelling and comforting in their own respects. Each track pushes this idea one step further, and if there is any project to show you how much damage Genshin can do in such a short amount of time, it has to be Distant. Connecticut has something very special on its hands, with this EP acting as perfect proof.
