The collection's standout "Masterpiece" sees her powerful voice resound over a softly strummed acoustic guitar as a buzzing hum rises in the background. She admits, "My blue heart shivers and misses your brushstrokes".
The lyrical imagery of "cloud castles" remains both vivid and vibrant as she truly has painted her own musical masterpiece. Everything fortifies this sonic ether for The Walking Dead star. Whether it's the lithe pop bliss of "Expired Lover", which is as sunny as it is sharp, or the coy catchiness of "Julie", she steps into her own as one of the most intriguing young artists in the game.
A powerful, playful, and passionate set, the EP covers a myriad of emotions and soundscapes successfully. Like any good dream, you don't want it to end.
