The production here is versatile. The misty structure, off-kilter secondary components, lingering tempo, and slackened vibe result in a golden fusion. The hook is a treasure. The vocals are sophisticated and the lyrics are cherishable. The verses are gracious. Maryann supplies flavorful vocals and infatuated lyrics. She dishes on the experience of being under the spell of that one true love. In keeping with the metaphorical theme of the record, the love she is referencing is both in a romantic sense as well as a musical sense. A sprinkling of lines worth recalling include: “Every song I sing it seems to be about you. I don’t want to sing if I can’t sing about you. (…) Every note, every key, that’s chose your playing with the parts of me. And every drop, your playing with the parts of me.” There is some strong symbolism within those words right there. Overall, this is an artistic effort.
**My Two Cents: Maryann and her Bedroomtrap style have really come to grow on me. I liked this record a lot. The production was entrancing and the content was intriguing. The different explorations of the term “soul mate” was a pretty fresh concept. Can’t wait to hear what else she has up her sleeve for her third LP. Be sure to keep up with her by following her on Twitter via the provided link. -MinM
