Niykee Heaton comes back with a three-track EP brought Starting Over. What’s more, it finds a satisfying center ground between the stripped-back artist/musician charge of her initial material and the urban-inclining bops that commanded The Bedroom Tour Playlist. Specifically, be that as it may, the melodies are as crude as they have ever been. Take EP opener, “Mascara.” at first glance, this is a smooth mid-rhythm that plays up the 23-year-old’s sex-little cat picture. In any case, burrow somewhat more profound, and it before long winds up clear that the tune is tied in with securing yourself inwardly.
“Demolish my lipstick, destroy my bed, demolish the hair up on my head,” she murmurs over finger snaps and insignificant beats, “Yet don’t you ever, destroy my mascara.” It’s an amazing begin, yet “Trouble maker” is stunningly better. This gives me “Terrible Intentions” vibes in both replay esteem and its capacity to catch a genuinely widespread affair (i.e. being allocated fault for something you didn’t do). “I detest that you detest me, that we’re finishing so revolting,” Niykee mourns on the irritable theme. “You can consider me the trouble maker, on the off chance that it encourages you rest during the evening.”
The short, but very sweet EP winds up with the excellent title track. “Starting Over” is a throwback to breakout star’s acoustic roots. She opens her heart on the ballad, showcasing her (underrated) vocals in the process. “If you really love me then let me go now, find somebody new and take ’em home now,” Niykee sings over acoustic guitar on the gut-wrenching breakup song. “I look at you, I miss you and I stop from starting over.” It’s so good to have her back.
