‘Embers in the Breeze’ is a song that seeks to verbalize the beauty you would find in someone. The lyrics in particular, pertain to the idea of living with love as a constant, immovable force, something that cannot be so easily shaken. The tempo and rhythm within the song are slow and steady, almost akin to building up the love you have for someone. ‘Kiss Me Again’ adds onto the theme of love, with lyrics encapsulating the feeling of life given from a partner. This song gives off a feeling of melancholy, where the first song highlights the pure joy and happiness a relationship can give. In particular, the lyrics convey a feeling of impending finality, almost as if Palousek knows that this time of peace and joy will eventually come to an end. The song subtly highlights the midpoint of a relationship on the rocks. ‘Not Your Baby’ is the finale of the EP, and seeks to send off the listener with a sense of heartbreak. While the first two songs focused on the love and joy of a relationship, this song focuses on one that wasn’t meant to be.
Ray Palousek’s newest EP, ‘Feelings’ is a course set up to provide listeners with the joy and heartbreak that can come with love. Each song within the EP seeks to take its listeners on a journey through its lyrics; While the first song highlights the burning passion of love, the final song is one of heartbreak and despair. ‘Kiss Me Again,’ or the second song within the EP, acts as the transitional point between the first and last songs. Ray Palousek showcases the journey of his own relationship with this EP.
