Chicago-born artist Nicolosi dives deep into our escapism in new EP Everywhere But Here. Through nine chromatic pop pieces, Nicolosi contemplates on the notions of time, mortality, beauty, ending, and avoidance while also giving us a lighthearted soundscape to indulge. Stream below:

In his own words, the EP “is an exercise in escapism. These songs were written at a time when I was constantly trying to escape myself, using different things as crutches to get through my daily life. I couldn’t face the paradox of extreme joy and sadness that comes with waking up everyday, knowing that one day it will all end. One day I will watch the sunset for the very last time and my consciousness will abandon my body for the next chapter in the universal narrative. The infinite beauty of birth and death – I’m enamored by it. Now I might seem super serious and you might be thinking ‘okay, but this guy has some really lighthearted songs – why is he trying to be so deep?’ Humor, joy, frustration, sadness – it’s all part of the story. Levity is the most powerful tool we have.”
