Praises • A World On Fire • 2021




On EP4, Praises pushes beyond their recent industrial synth-based offerings, incorporating the intensity of their highly regarded live performances with an intimate, collaborative, and distanced songwriting process. EP4 was composed as a combination of two songs that never felt like they had a home until they were met with two new tracks formed in collaboration with producer, DJ, and performer Shortbloom (aka Sachin Mohindra). In this "grueling time of human reckoning," the songs on EP4 grew slowly and reflective. One about the quieter moments of love in the storm of 2020 (Apples For My Love), one a vicious anti-trump / anti-American declaration (We Let Go), one a call of protest (Soil), and one a track about diaspora and war (A World On Fire). With these themes of mortality, identity, and love, Jesse Crowe's 4th EP as Praises examines their recovery, strength, and their enduring lightness.
