4 Songs – Audio:
Beats hit hard on the fanfare of the title track “Change the World”. Here there is a clear pop influence, judging from the carefully sculpted bass line that worms its way through the infectious melodies. Things slow down for a meditative take on the grandeur of the piano-led “What’s In Your Heart”. Sung with such fire and passion, the track proves to be the highlight of the EP, as the piece soars with a symphonic glee. Classically inclined “Melody” builds and builds itself into a virtual wave of sound washing over the listener. So much sheer kinetic energy defines the powerful, defiant blend of “Free”. Here there is a strong sense of purpose of trying to accomplish one’s dreams.
