JP Cooper releases new EP 'When The Darkness Comes'

JP Cooper released his new EP 'When The Darkness Comes' today. The five track EP, featuring songs such as 'Closer' and 'Satellite', is a highly anticipated release from the singer-songwriter. He's been on our radar for a while now and everything sent to us simply blows us away. 


'When The Darkness Comes' isn't that different from previous releases in the sense that Cooper's sweet voice and melodic guitar create a perfect match to make a relaxing and peaceful EP. It's gold from start to finish. The songs are packed with good vibes that make your head nod and toes tap. Cooper's voice hits high notes just right and with it accompanied by layers of backing vocals it cooks up a beautiful EP.

You can pick up 'When The Darkness Comes' here.

Check out his social media links below.
