Pennsylvania alternative rock/pop artist KULICK (aka Jacob Kulick) has announced plans to release a new EP ‘Sitting in a Quiet Coffeehouse’ on April 30 via Enci Records (The Joy Formidable, Fences). The mini-album features 5 new stripped-down interpretations of fan favourites taken from his 2020 breakthrough LP ‘Yelling In A Quiet Neighborhood.’
Kulick is giving fans a preview of the EP with the release of the first single, an acoustic re-working of the song “Just Be Friends.” The original version of the track landed on Spotify’s The New Alt, New Noise, All-New Rock, and Pop Rock playlists as well as Amazon UK’s Alt Scene playlist, among others.
Of the new EP, Kulick says, “I created the album “Sitting in a Quiet Coffeehouse” which gives a new perspective to my most recent album “Yelling in a Quiet Neighborhood.” I have always felt the strongest with songs in their acoustic form. I used multiple acoustics in the recording process, including Taylors, Martins, and the new Fender Acoustasonic. Re-recording these songs with more of a “coffeehouse” vibe (hence the name “Sitting in a Quiet Coffeehouse”) made me remember what it was like when I first learned the acoustic guitar and when I first recorded these songs. It made me feel a bittersweet nostalgia in both cases. It also made me realize how sad some of these songs actually are when you take away all of the production. Overall, I hope it gives fans, both new and old, some KULICK songs that are more “chill” than normal, but still organic and authentic.”
