The Whitman Strategy is the long-awaited follow-up to It Just Fell, the 2018 album. Rather than a conventional album, The Whitman Strategy will be released as a series of EPs.
The opener, "Kalm Heart", introduces a sparkling lead synth and a soaring clarinet; a contemplative beginning where a gently brooding analog bass gives the piece a contemporary sound.
"The Aftermath", originally conceived as an idea two years ago, reflects the unsettling times we find ourselves in; it's a bleak piece of music, with themes of mass consumption and melancholic nostalgia, that evokes a claustrophobic and desolate mood.
"Replenished" closes the EP on a more positive note, with a bold, synthesised wall of sound, swamped in a bed of reverb leading to a satisfying crescendo and evocative field recordings.
