21-year-old singer-songwriter Sirota is set to release her debut alt-RnB-Pop EP, ‘Grey’; an exploration of the transitional moments in early adulthood which teach us a thing or two about self-reflection. You’d be hard-pressed to find a more self-aware artist on the airwaves.
The standout single, ‘Matches’, showcases the best of the South Brooklyn born and raised artist’s talent when it comes to painting vivid imagery with her lyricism. With the repetition of lines such as, “You just want to love me and burn”, Sirota normalises the experience of being disposed of while proving that it is possible to take being burned in your stride. The jazz-infused RnB pop instrumentals easily parallel the affable nature of the vocals through infectious electronically crafted melodies that will hazily linger in your mind for days.
Matches will be available to stream from May 21st. You can check it out for yourselves via Spotify.
