New direction, new sound and new EP for Adil Memon
MUSICIAN Adil Memon has taken a few years to figure out the sound he wants as an artist.
At 20, the former reality TV star reckons he has found his own genre and is coming back from a recording hiatus to release a new single and EP in a matter of weeks.
The unnamed EP is a soul, electronica and acoustic mix that aims to set itself apart from existing music sounds, Adil said.
"I guess the whole aim of it is to not really conform to what everyone else is doing," Adil said.
"It's very different to what I've previously released because I feel ... I've found my sound."
The first single Same Way is due to be released on August 9 and will feature the EP's producer and Adil's best mate Ezra James on the track.
The EP itself does not yet have a release date, but will be released in quick succession to Same Way, Adil said.

He said the EP was a random decision that sprung from a recording session less than two months ago.
"It just happened, we were just doing a random track and it was going well," Adil said.
The Ipswich singer's debut EP was only released in April, but he said the songs had been recorded for some time and didn't really fit where he is as a performer now.
"I'm really looking forward to my supporters and fans seeing the artist I am compared to the artist I was," he said.
Adil plans to release the EP as a free release online to thank the close-to 100,000 fans he has amassed across multiple social media sites such as Twitter and Facebook.
"I think its time I gave something back to them and I think doing a free- release EP is the way forward."
Ezra will also promote the song when he launches a club tour around Australia this week.
