Good Posture – Changin’ (EP)
New EP from Good Posture (aka Joel Randles) lands today, a quartet of songs filled with hazy guitars and synth-pop punches. Latest single Last Time sets the pace, sitting somewhere between Gengahr and Klaxons on the indie classics playlist, before taking things down a pace on title track Changin’, a ballad for modern times. Remaining tracks I Feel Fine and Italy demonstrate Joel’s versatility and production skills with twists and turns throughout.
The EP reflects on the impact of moving from place to place, not forgetting the added changes brought about by lockdown. Joel says, “It’s essentially an internal conversation about constantly moving around and trying to convince myself that leaving a place is not always the answer, that I should be more content with what I have. But then equally driving myself crazy at the same time wondering if my decision was the right thing to do in the moment.”
If the music is a by-product of those changes, then you would have to conclude that some good decisions have been made; the songs follow the journey and definitely lift the mood for the better.
Changin’ is released today via Feeltrip / Tip Top Recordings and is available to buy on vinyl here
