The EP’s choral vocals tell a story without words, with a rich landscape of symphonic instruments. An ambient mix of sound and samples interweave melodic fluctuating tempos creating an organic flow.

Following an intense 6-month tour across the US and three consecutive European tours, Kolby began writing his debut EP. The long anticipated Absorb the Quiet is a blend of vintage analog keyboards, drum machines, live percussion and field recordings from his travels to Egypt and Cambodia. These one-of-a-kind recordings create a natural melody that cannot be manufactured, adding depth and mystery to his work.
