While his dreams of becoming a young Youtuber fell through, Eduard Luli never gave up on making it to the stars. The rapper from down under has fans swooning over his lyrical abilities and melodic hues.
After the critically acclaimed release of his single with visuals “Numb,” the Australian urban artist comes back stronger than ever, this time with a full nine-track EP, Love & Fear. The EP opens up with “High,” a soft intro rap to get you right in the mood. Followed by “Wishes,” the artist keeps his streak of calm yet powerful rap melodies that have you on the edge of your seat.
The EP also features collaborations with renowned artists in the scene. The track “Frozen” has Luli singing about a frozen heart and an unrequited love featuring the artist ZPLUTO. The album also features the distinguished artist Rhiannon Renea on the track “Psycho,” where both Luli and Renea deliver raw emotional chemistry through words that speak to your heart.
Luli is well known for his niche, heartbreak rap, visible through all his works and releases. His ability to create newfound versions of this microgenre has definitely set him apart from his peers in the scene. With smooth, soothing, and a nostalgic vibe, Love & Fear is the perfect collection to turn to when we are feeling down in a relationship or are just feeling stuck. His words make the listener feel understood and feel like someone is right there in the room with them.
Throughout the tracklist, his use of guitar lines sets an exciting element in Luli’s music, with some numbers having at least a few string textures spread out throughout the track. This brings a much-needed organic feel to the entire EP.
