Allana Verde – “Past Midnight EP”
“For me, great music is relatable music, and this EP is just that: relatable and fun! I wanted each track to be a little different and set a particular mood for the evening. It was so much fun creating this project. And I recorded the entire thing in four days with some amazing artists.” – Verde
“Past Midnight” is a sensual, late-night narrative enveloped in lush ‘90s pop and dreamy electronic synths. Also, the project takes listeners on a journey of an all-nighter, from midnight to sunrise.
Another two hours later, Verde enlists Joe Grind and DaVinChe to paint a flirtatious tale of a horny man that’s liking her pictures via Instagram. He slides into her DMs and tries to score, not knowing he’s in for a treat because she’s in the mood for love.
“Staring at the ceiling got me wishing that he was laying in my bed. And I got a feeling that these visions are gonna keep on playing in my head. If I don’t phone him, I’ll never ever know what his touch is like. But I don’t know him, I guess I gotta leave it for tonight.”
The final hour comes, and Verde enlists Mikill Pane to vent on a sugary electronica-pop track.
“I don’t get ready for anybody, you better get ready for me (‘cause it’s like that). I don’t wanna meet just any bodies, some punk ass depending on me (don’t like that sh*t). Somebody out there for everybody. There’s plenty more fish in the sea (go find that fish). I know you looking for anybody. I promise you it isn’t me.”
Verde’s evocative singles are couched in a sonic framework of a wonderful contemporary EP perfumed with a classic odor. Therefore, we recommend adding her “Past Midnight” EP to your personal playlist.
