“Lowtide is our biggest achievement,” said I.K when questioned about the EP Lowtide that has in total three tracks.
“The EP is for good vibes and each track has a different kind of vibe to suit whatever the event is,” said Savy.
The EP was released on 6 September and both the artists are impressed with the responses they have received from fans as expressed by I.K.
“For us, for a new account just getting 600 plays just like that, it’s a blessing and that feeling of when you look at the expression of someone when they listen to your song, it’s amazing. I take it as something huge which is why I will never stop,” they say.
