In contrast with previously rather darker releases, the No Pressure EP by Charlottesville, Virginia-based collective Free Union brings an uplifting and energetic sound while addressing themes of inequality, self-doubt, and patience.

The band’s ever-evolving sound rooted in soul with elements of blues, rock, and pop shine on “Bottom Falls Out”. The groove pulses gently with the clean guitar phrases and the warm John Mayer-esque vocal performance offers some soulful yet powerful melodies, driving the track forward and making it the ultimate indie-soul gem.
