LA-based Kaitlyn Aurelia Smith’s latest EP, ‘The Steady Heart’, is pulsing with a magnetic, swirling current. An assault on the senses in the most liberating way, it welcomes twenty minutes of inspired contemplation. A soaring teaser to the composer’s upcoming May album, The Mosaic of Transformation, Smith promises to scale to new heights of clarity on the two tracks released here. Titular ‘The Steady Heart’ is ambitious and ferocious, yet soothingly serene.
The titanic, ten minute closer to the EP, ‘Expanding Electricity’, is precisely that. Expansive and open, as the listener you are exclusively invited into Smith’s tranquil world. With an array of almost unplaceable sounds amidst her chanting, the track could easily become cacophonous. Yet, Smith’s magic touch makes it transformative and meditative. Amidst chaos, the track effortlessly summons a moment of peace, crafting a sea of visuals to keep any thoughts intrusive to the space she creates at bay. Smith’s EP is immersive and consuming, destined to leave you longing for more.
