D∆WN (formerly known as Dawn Richard) has a knack for crafting airy-yet-lush arrangements, and continues her sound with the release of the Infrared EP. The project is a collaborative effort with Fade To Mind chief and producer Kingdom.
The four-track EP is set off by the track “Honest,” which introduces many world music elements while balancing D∆WN’s R&B core. From there, a standard of simplistic-yet-sonically engaging creations come into play.
The track “How I Get It” is a prime example, only consisting of finger snaps and chimes to accompany the singer’s layered and syncopated vocals. D∆WN’s vocals and songwriting abilities on joints like "Paint It Blue" and "Baptize" are impressive, and match the precise and entrancing production provided by Kingdom.
