Published May 12, 2015Austin-based electronic music maker Missio is ready to release his self-titled debut EP, and Exclaim! is offering up a stream of the entire release now.
The past year saw Missio leave his Colorado home, move into an Airstream trailer, and travel across the country creating music away from the chaos of big city life. The result was 52 newly penned tracks, though the new EP features just five of the finest.
"I became inspired to create songs about my experiences, past and present, giving no thought to oppositions outside of my own mind," he said in a statement, explaining the incredibly fruitful creative period. "This was the first time as a songwriter that I was able to write for myself, exactly the way I wanted to hear it."
Missio serves as a sweeping, cinematic introduction to his sound, showcasing everything from the sparse, poignant opener "I Run to You" to the synth-heavy, beat-driven "Missio Dei" to the introspective, piano-propelled closing ballad "Who Do I Think I Am."
The independently released Missio is officially out now, and you can stream it in its entirety below.
