Most notable indications of this on the EP can be heard on ‘Fm (interlinked)’, where the arrangement serves more like a soundtrack to a cinematic plot, and ‘FLMP’ a funky number which could be Cadence’s most pop song yet. ‘Pendulum’ EP also sees each band member creating more space for each other, especially evident on “All You Need Remains”, where the band builds instrument by instrument till reaching its anthemic chorus.

Also evident on the EP is the stark contrast between it’s lighter arrangements and its darker ones. Frontman, Seth Chiam explains to Asian Pop Radio:
“Thematically, the song ‘Pendulum’, sums it up best. It’s about a swing between being hopeful and hopeless. The first track ‘Fugitives’ is reckless abandon, by the time the listener hears ‘Rumination’ in the middle, it’s rock bottom, and the last two tracks are about recovering and resetting.”
Following the launch, the band will have an official launch for ‘Pendulum’ EP at Baybeats Festival, 17 August 2018, along with Singapore Night Festival 2018 on the 23 August. The band is looking towards working with the different artists they meet to deconstruct and create alternative versions of their new songs!
