Reverie is clearly an attempt to focus on his singing and writing, and good job too. To make a bold comparison, think about when Calvin Harris started back in 2007, a self-starting producer who lends his voice to his work and who was quickly picked up through his online presence. Misch’s music may not be as ‘big’ as Harris’, but he is capable of traveling the same route to success - not that he seems particularly set on superstardom. Having sold out London's considerably sized Village Underground before having a ‘full album’ under his belt, Misch clearly has the support, albeit a slightly longer run-up.
There’s the start of a social message and broader dream to Reverie which shows there is more to come on the writing front, with sentiments like “I wish you’d seen who I could have been” shortly followed by “don’t be afraid of who you want to be” abounding. Elsewhere, “as I wake up from this crazy dream / I hope things remain as they seem” is in a surprisingly upbeat spirit for what, for many, might seem a gloomy summer thus far.
Although brought up on the violin, this EP sees all four tracks arrive fully instrumental for the first time, demonstrating Misch's ambition. It definitely pays off with the string section opening "Watch Me Dance" and his sister’s sax throughout "Follow", but the acoustic guitar is the constant pivot of his groovy, snap-drummed beach sound.
