Following on from his acclaimed 2020 debut mixtapes, Wollongong artist Stevan continues to amaze us with his brand of chill-pop brilliance with his first release of the year in ‘Hope It’s Not’, a breezy offering showcase his stunning vocal prowess amongst a lo-fi production base that depicts a journey of searching for real intimacy and love.
From the early stages of ‘Hope It’s Not’ we are exposed to the uncompromising groove in both the percussion and bass that cements itself as a critical force in the spectrum whilst the bright guitars and swooping keys bring a contrast amongst the heavenly vocals of Stevan that deliver a soothing sensation across the soundscape.
“‘Hope It’s Not’ is about finding the right person at the wrong time. Well maybe not wrong time but an unexpected time. And adjusting to the feeling of not being ready for love, to acknowledging your true feelings despite being conflicted.” – Stevan
