Belaganas / Smile More EP

Making their first appearance on the Early Rising website is Phoenix based group, Belaganas. If you’ve read any of my writing on Lyrical Lemonade, then you’d know that I’m a huge fan of these guys and it’s not just because they live in the same city as me. The three pieced group consists of Shanker, Joey J, and Nick Wille who are all talented individuals in their own right and have chosen to bring their skills together to create an amazing artist project that is bound to turn a lot of heads. Belaganas have been making music for a little bit now and today, they just dropped an EP that might just be my favorite collection of songs that they’ve ever released.

The project, called, “Smile More” contains 4 of the most infectious songs that you’ll hear this week. Each one exudes a very different energy, but they all work together to contribute to the overall tone of their artistry; Guys who love making great music that doesn’t conform, but instead, stands out in the best way possible. It’s hard to pick my favorite song off of this EP, but “Jacknife is truly such a great song and I’ve found myself playing this one on repeat from the moment I heard it.

I love this group so much and it makes me so hype to see them receiving the attention that they’ve been due. I’ve attached the Spotify link down below so you can listen to the EP! Check it out and let us know what you think!
