THE NEMESES EP
RIVALS' second EP proves even further range, versatility, and sonic innovations are in store from the production duo.
Opening with a dreamy beat that wistfully calls out to early downtempo and sample based electronica - NEMESES is a sprint from light to dark, from vibey to ominous - ending with a savage banger that seems more at home in the final climax of a gritty dystopian film than an instrumental EP.
While we await the release of a more traditional, feature-heavy mixtape project - NEMESES gives us instead a glimpse into the aesthetics and production techniques of RIVALS as they continue to expand their catalogue, repertoire, and audience.
