Innovation never stops – whether in the technology field, in medicine, or in music, improvement is always just beyond the horizon. As it might be expected, the horizon is only a limit for those who choose to see it that way. For others, it is a goal that can be reached with outstretched hands and an incontrovertible determination.

John Savage has shown that determination with the first single from his upcoming Intense EP, “Fantasy.” Blending pleasant sweeps with soft and mystical pads, Savage is able to create a universe within his sound that transports listeners to another dimension. His goal – the horizon – is opposite that of bangers. And while bangers and musicality aren’t inherently mutually exclusive, that often happens to be the case.

Intense comes out October 30. Pre-order here, and find out how far that horizon can go.
