The stories that singer-songwriter Nicholas Chim writes play out more like intimate diary entries.
He steers clear of the abstract and ruminates in a deeply direct manner, which can be jarring when married with intricate folk instrumentation, but the sheer honesty of Chim's music — one soused with bitterness and passion — lends credence to the challenges of human vulnerability that can be difficult to tackle.

Before the EP's official release, he's revealed the music video to one of its four songs — the lush and striking 'Overboard', which is bolstered by strings and the vocals of Aarika Lee.
