Turn off your mind, relax and float downstream while you envelop into the delicate world created by George Boomsma and his latest EP release, What’s Left Behind. Each track breathes and feels like an elongated respite.

There are pains and doubts just below the surface but they are navigated beautifully and with much majesty. An evolution of Boomsma’s previous work – his sympathetically plucked guitar is backed by a tender-hearted string quartet which fully immerses you into his world and is further amplified by his velour-soaked vocals. The journey of relationships, self-acceptance and finding a path forward despite uncertainties are painted in a word tapestry that will leave you questioning what came before you, how did you get here and what is lying ahead.
