Being only four songs long this début EP doesn't give you a huge amount to go on. But each of these songs has a captivating story to tell; whether it be an optimistic promise to her boyfriend, or a ballad to help those who self-harm. These songs are all from the heart and are all so heart-warming to listen to that you can't help but admire the girl.
Sure, these songs aren't as diverse when it comes to subject matter as her hair colour has been over the last year - but that doesn't really matter a huge amount. This four-track beauty varies enough with tempo and musical experimentation that you can forgive her for it. A perfect example of this experimentation is with the tracks 'Lies' and 'The Promise'; the former being all pop-rocky and more catchy than the common cold, whereas 'The Promise' is a perfect example of how powerful an acoustic guitar, a brilliant voice and some of the best lyrics I have heard in an album for a while, can be. I first heard 'The Promise' over a year ago, and back then it made the hairs on the back of my neck stand up because it delivers such a strong message; a year later it still has the same effect. It is an utterly wonderful song.
A powerful debut EP that is a perfect stepping stone for this 21-year-old from Essex. If her music develops and matures in such a way she could really be a big player in the singer-songwriter world. Her lyrics are already on point; they are fabulous. I feel she just needs to branch out with what she sings about a little. Regardless, though! This is a stunning debut EP.
