The Gliders duo share their first project after a busy six months.
During lockdown, a whole new wave of acts built audiences online and threatened to blow the lid of their respective scenes when society opened up again. Gliders’ duo TraviS and Elzzz found themselves right in the mix of artists pushing the needle and in 2022 neither have taken their foot off the pedal.
Today, they share their first collaborative EP Independent after dropping joint singles like ‘PRICEY’ and solo cuts like ‘NONSTOP’ and ‘Aii’. The three track offering comes in under 10 minutes and tracks like ‘Talktye’ showcase a more emotive twist that has previously been masked in previous singles. All three tracks feature production from rising producer and artist Liam Harris.
Speaking on Instagram the pair said, “SINCE WE STARTED MAKING MUSIC WE SAID WE WOULD ALWAYS STAY TRUE TO OURSELVES. ALONG THE WAY WE’VE MET REAL FANS WE’VE MET LIFE CHANGERS WE’VE HEARD LIES WE’VE SEEN DISAPPOINTMENT WEVE HAD HIGHS & WE’VE HAD LOWS. THIS EP IS ABOUT THE JOURNEY AND THE WORK THAT WEVE PUT IN”.
The project comes after Gliders launched their G-Suits and headlined District’s New Voices event.
