Water Song EP is Mekila's second commercial release on GYPSYPOP RECORDS, following his debut release, The Finest Day. The anthemic vitality of the title track, "Water Song" and the layered, mystical vocals on "Either Side of the River", lead the unsuspecting listener to the sweet, driving power of the EP's finale, "Wild Among the Wolves". With its colorful harmonies and a surprisingly multifaceted movement of tone, Water Song EP marks an important and delicious shift in Mekila's career towards further exploration of sonic strangeness.
