EP Review: Probably Crying – Girl Wilde

When I first hit the play button on GIRL WILDE‘s latest EP, ‘Probably Crying’, I wasn’t only instantly hit by the explosive combo of electro pop and 90’s inspired grunge rock, but her alluring vocals that could rival the likes of Gwen Stefani.

Don’t get caught up in the fluffy frills with a slight rebellious streak, if you’re planning to listen to this EP. Beyond the fun-packed arrangements, the LA artist bravely taps into her vulnerability and covers personal and deep-rooted subjects such as depression (in ‘I Don’t Wanna Die,’ ‘Probably Crying’), female sexual desire (‘WeT’), and anger management (‘BATSHiT’).

Although the above subjects are often swept under the carpet, the message in this EP is clear and simple: it’s OK to experience those feelings, so embrace them!

‘Probably Crying’ is one pretty neat package – why not check it out below…

New Music Video: Not Perfect – Gena Perala

GENA PERALA unveiled a hazy production for latest single, ‘Not Perfect’, released 19th of July,  as part of a three song EP. Working with long-time producer Chris Gestrin, the two create a haunting sound, enhanced by Perala’s pure yet chilling voice and honest lyrics.

As with her previous videos, Perala has teamed up with incredibly talented dancers to help the convey the prominent messages in her latest offering.

Speaking of her single, the Canadian singer/songwriter explains: “I’m often the person who speaks her mind, who knows who she is and who stands up for what she believes in. I’ve always had a strong voice and while those qualities are encouraged in theory, in practice, not so much. No, I don’t always say it right and yes, I can get emotional, I’m not perfect but my heart is always in the right place.”

‘Not Perfect’ is the third song off the EP, baring the same name, which includes her previously released songs ‘Good Girl’ (2018) and ‘I Will Never Know’ (2019). The three songs tell a story of moving from powerlessness to uncertainty to perseverance.

‘Not Perfect’ is now available on all download/streaming sites…have a sneak of the video below:
