The voice behind one of summer's biggest hits delivers a pop gem with debut EP.
Rachel Platten achieves EP of the Week with her Fight Song EP [Columbia Records]. You've probably already heard "Fight Song," the breakout hit from the Boston-born and New York-based pop songstress. It's rightfully become one of the biggest anthems of the summer so far with its uplifting refrain, emotional delivery, and soulful vocal prowess. It's an undeniable and energetic anthem that's already gone Gold and proven her as one of music's most exciting rising stars. She's got that kind of timeless voice that adds real depth to pop music, and she's using it to really change the game.
"Fight Song" is just one-fourth of her stunning debut EP though. The songs like "Lone Ranger" illuminate how dynamic and diverse she can truly be. She runs through lyrics with raw tenacity charismatically declaring, "I'm a lion, I'm a tiger, I'm a caged bird, I'm on fire," charismatically carrying each note before the crescendo on to "I'm a lone ranger." It's a declaration of independence that's instantly invigorating.
