London-based musician & producer Vraell has released his new EP Smoke through Nettwerk today, featuring all the previous singles from this year, such as “Collateral,” “Flicker” and “Point“.

The new release showcases the musical versatility of Vraell, featuring intricate acoustic guitar, interspaced with electronic flourishes as his sincere, heartfelt vocals soar throughout the tracks. The EP tackles the topics of abuse and trauma, and how people try to survive it… dealing with immediate deep-rooted feelings and things that happen over the years, all the people along the way, including oneself. From start to finish, Smoke EP presents a vivid snapshot of Vraell’s world and invokes deep emotions that resonate with everyone.

“At the root of it all – this EP is about abuse and the lengths/distances you go to keep the trauma at bay. It’s dealing with the aftermath of it and how we carry it in these cycles, and if we aren’t careful this can destroy relationships and ourselves in the process,” Vraell explained.
