Gawvi is back with his follow up to his hit EP, Lost In Hue, which released only about a month and a half ago. The infectious dance tunes are back, and Holding Hue certainly sounds like a continuation of his previous work.
The EP starts with "Desire," a sweet song about family and being there through good times and bad. Already we can see that Holding Hue is bit better lyrically than Lost in Hue, but overall it still has typical dance song depth. Darrein Safron's vocals fit the tempo nicely, and the tune is catchy, albeit slightly boring. "Still Got Me," sung by Jocelyn Bowman, is a mellow-sounding track dedicated to Gawvi's wife. This is one of the better songs and has a very attractive beat.
The best song out of the two EPs lyrically is "Don't Have To Feel Sorry." The lyrics from Darrein Safron are heartfelt cries saying that there must be more to life than what the world has to offer. John Givez also has a really nice verse about the problems he has, but follows it up with "'Cause I don't need no pity up in my party/And I don't see no shame in being honest." The beat throughout is one of the most unique I've heard from Gawvi and complements the lyrics perfectly.
"Free" is the only song here that I would say is not that good. The lyrics are hard to understand because of the beat, and the chorus is nothing new.
Overall, Holding Hue is the best Gawvi has put out to date. The songs slow it down and focus more on the message, more than in Lost in Hue, and the beats feel more unique. I forsee myself playing this over and over throughout the coming months.JFH Reader Review: Review date: 9/13/16, written by Liam Jackson for Jesusfreakhideout.com
