EP Review: Damaged Vol.2 – Bülow

I’ve been following BÜLOW since her debut ‘This Is Not A Song’ and I take my hat off to this newcomer for injecting some spunk into pop music, that’s sometimes jarringly melancholic. After teasing us with follow ups, such as ‘Lines’ and ‘Sad and Bored’, the singer/songwriter unleashed her EP ‘Damaged Vol.2.’

‘Sad and Bored’ set the scene for the three-track set, with its downtrodden-ish thump which somehow sounds like a slow down version of Toni Basil’s 80’s hit, ‘Hey Mickey’.

‘Honor Roll’ offers up a real soulfulness to her usual downtempo signature, something I haven’t noticed in her previous releases (unless I’m tone-deaf!). That oomph of soul continues which slightly pick up speed and gives that extra spice in concluding effort, ‘You and Jennifer’, before abruptly signing off.

BÜLOW has definitely surpass her previous offerings with this EP and from this point, it can only get better. However, I do feel a little cheated as ‘Damaged Vol.2’ is way too short…NOT FAIR!!!

Check her out below:

Must Listen: You and Jennifer

Song of the Day: Sad and Bored – Bülow (ft. DUCKWRTH)

Critically acclaimed German born pop iconoclast BÜLOW presents her melancholic single ‘Sad and Bored, taken from her latest EP, ‘Damaged’, released earlier the month.

Of the song, she comments, “I was imaging myself trapped in a metaphorical cage of my own boredom. Duckworth’s voice and lyrics helped bring those visuals to life.”

Beyond ‘Sad and Bored’, the EP will boast the stark and soulful ‘You & Jennifer’ as well as the shimmering and vulnerable “Honor Roll”, full track listing below. This summer, she takes this enigmatic sound on the road, launching a full-scale European festival takeover.

After releasing her powerful debut ‘Damaged Vol. 1’, BÜLOW has instantly resonated with critics and new fans alike. With her first ever single going straight to the top of the charts, BÜLOW has announced to the world that she has arrived.

The tracks ‘Like This Guy’, ‘Lines’, and ‘Not A Love Song’ have clocked over 30 million streams, reaching the Spotify Global Viral chart and earning praise as “beautifully crafted” (NME), “pop genius” (Noisey), and a “star in the making” (Pigeon & Planes).

A child of the globe, the bright-eyed young singer has grown up in five countries including Canada, Germany, the UK, the US, and is currently finishing high-school in The Netherlands. Although BÜLOW has only just begun her musical journey with these three sentimental, playful, and haunting tracks, “Damaged Vol 1” stands tall as an impressive flag-bearer for things to come….

Time to check out ‘Sad and Bored’…and if you have time, be sure to check out her latest EP, as this alt-songstress is definitely worth the hype.
