Josh Wantie teased fans with singles ‘Young’ and ‘Savanna’ in 2019 hyping the release of his long-awaited sophomore EP ‘Lifeline’. The wait is over as Wantie releases this ‘Lifeline EP’ today across all digital platforms.
‘Lifeline EP’ is the follow up release to the incredible debut EP ‘Paper Crown’ which catapulted Wantie’s music career.
‘Young’ and ‘Savanna’ were the first 2 singles released from the ‘Lifeline EP’ and fans can finally hear the complete collection of songs, celebrating Josh Wantie’s finest work to date.
The EP is completed with singles ‘Lighthouse’ – a slightly darker more sombre track, yet with an uplifting chorus, and actually the first of the EP tracks that was written – and ‘Feel Something’ – which ties the EP together with a more feel-good electro indie track, filled with catchy hooks and a really clean and emotive vocal delivery.
“I just need a Lifeline, something to grab onto, then I can pull myself out of this,” Josh clearly remembered as he recalled a conversation with a friend who was suffering from mental health issues. Having suffered similar issues of his own years earlier, his aim was to draw on these experiences to craft a message of hope and positivity for those in a similar position.
‘Lifeline EP’ is a recollection of what Josh’s ‘lifeline’ has been over the years as he recounts what helped him through mental health struggles of his own. “We all have ‘lifelines’ that are around us if we just know where to look. They can sometimes be the only thing stopping us from going over the edge. If we just frame our minds differently for long enough to see them and change the tide so to speak. The message of this ep could have been a happier one (which I will probably write in the future) but for now it seems many people are genuinely suffering. Not to get too deep but I think it was important for me to address that in my own way and possibly help someone look to potential ‘lifeline(s)’ in their own lives,” says Josh Wantie.
The authenticity as well as passion of the song writing, coupled with heartfelt lyrics, makes the ‘Lifeline’ EP 4 beautiful tracks you don’t want to miss out on.
Josh Wantie’s brand new EP ‘Lifeline’ is available now.
