Amame is a bouncy track that showcases the eclectic nature of Henderson. With hints of traditional blues, jazz, and even modern musical styles, what issues forth during the introductory track is unique. Things continue to shift and change during the titular track on the EP; fans will hear a bit of 1980s R&B (e.g. Sade) that has been weaved through Lauren’s vocals. The slower sound of Separate showcase the raw passion and feeling that Henderson is capable of, something that continues on during both Bajito and Slow Control. Ennui, the track that separates these two will appease fans of smart instrumentation. One’s heartstrings will be pulled with each line that issues forth.
