Nashville is full of artists continuously crafting and creating new art. There are projects released every day, whether it be a painting, design, or composition, specifically made to have significance in some form. Each artist’s expression is unique, and often times a whole-hearted representation of their inner-being. Today, The Early Reset released their debut EP, aptly titled Full Potential. After writing new material for two years, Steven Arthur worked with close friends and even family to bring his art to life. His arrival to Nashville was different than that of his band members, who shared a similar path of moving to Music City from the midwest. Arthur made the trek all the way from Hawaii, and now happily calls Nashville home with his wife Caitlin and hyperactive dog Shasta. Inspired by influences such as Coldplay, Foster the People, Keane, Bastille, and Owl City, this EP is a testament to the ground The Early Reset has been able to cover as a new artist. Full Potential contains the title track single, three demos, and a bonus track, setting up for a highly anticipated second EP later this year. Take a listen to a couple of the new songs:
The title track “Full Potential” launches the EP in proper fashion, with full-scale production drawing on heavy percussion and a hooky chorus highlighting the feeling his character reaches in a western-themed story line. In the demo section of the EP, Arthur adjusts to an acoustic vibe, fit to match heartfelt songs “I’ll Be There” and “Sun Comes Up.” In “Ladders,” the combination of acoustic and electronic tracks strike a familiarity to influences like Bastille. The EP finishes up with the EDM-inspired anthem, “Holding On,” leaving us patiently waiting and ready for the next release.
