This makes me all the more excited to hear the rest of her self-titled debut EP that was recorded this Spring at Capital Records. I mean you’ve got trippy synths, crazy beats, it’s like techno fused power pop for people raised in space, the chorus is hooky as hell and there is of course the absolutely magnetic allure of her sultry vocals–it’s positively dreamy and this is the first taste of what’s to come....
