P for Pepsine is now back and even more of a Solo act. On his latest EP, "Sunsets EP", despite his
new design, Pepsine remains loyal to his self-proclaimed genre: Home-Fi (taken from Lo-Fi).
Repetitions are not his strength, but more the contiuation of his own productions. He has
everything done from the first song sketch to the artwork on his own. Because in between lies
the actual craft that allows us to know that it sounds the way it sounds when individual pop
music results: songwriting, arranging, playing all of the instruments (analog & digital), recording
and mixing. In addition, once again Pepsine designed the artwork of the new record himself.
And now comes the new EP "Sunsets EP". "I want to give the audience the opportunity to
concentrate on fewer songs at once, to bring each song to the center, as the available time of the
average person has become a scarce commodity. Therefore, the idea with the EP instead of a
long play is a reaction to the zeitgeist.” The multi-faceted songs on "Sunsets EP" need in fact
some time to pick up on them. Although the five new songs are to be classified under pop, they
don’t stick to the familiar and common structures in the genre, but they more celebrate their
unique atmosphere. In contrast to the debut album "Plans to leave for good”, analog instruments
keep in the background and give priority to electronic sounds. Pepsine: "That was the
concept, it's sort of an opposite reaction to the songs on the debut ‘Plans to Leave For Good’. I
was quite aware of this when I started writing.” What remains is the Pepsine-typical songwriting
and distinctive vocals, even when sometimes interpreted in a different way.
"The recognition is reflected in the individuality”, Pepsine says. And that is also applied to "Sunsets
EP" again. Consciously, he stamps a fat "P for Pepsine" on it. Melancholy moods, beautiful,
but not cheesy melodies, personal lyrics and a private sound characterize the new songs on
"Sunsets EP". It crackles again as it should and must. And that's a good thing. It’s just Home-Fi.
