Kimon Rayne’s latest EP “Flowers Don’t Speak” is tender in its minimalism but still has enough groove to get the feet tapping.

Combining elements from tropical, tech house, and downtempo to create unique soundscapes Rayne asks us to see nature for what it is: something that is essential to all life on earth and therefore demands respect and appreciation.

The opening track, 'Water & Light', uses the life-preserving qualities of water as a way of explaining how music keeps Rayne going. The steady back-beat keeps the song going as his smooth vocals mix with the delicate melodies and create the feeling of a river easing its way to the ocean.

'Undergrowth' takes a darker, almost sinister turn. The tension in the song creates an eerie, otherworldly atmosphere. There’s a darkly seductive quality to Rayne’s voice as he tries to lure us into an appreciation of the quiet hours.

Listen to 'Undergrowth' below!

'Strong Roots' brings in a stronger dance beat in an ode to finding support in one’s life before 'Droplets' brings a calm, appreciative curtain down on the piece.

'Flowers Don’t Speak' expresses itself through minimalism, letting the whole arrangement tell the story instead of just the vocals which opens the door to interesting, evocative aural landscapes.
