4 Songs, 10 Minutes

EDITORS’ NOTES

Summer Walker is the definition of an introvert. The Atlanta R&B newcomer and 2019 Up Next artist keeps to herself and prefers the sanctuary of the studio. “Whenever something is completely bothering me, I like to hold it in because I don’t talk to a lot of people,” Walker tells Apple Music. “That’s why, a lot of times, my songs are emotional.”

But however quiet her demeanor is in public, she’s outspoken on this four-song EP recorded live in her hometown. The bare-bones acoustic “Riot” and Latin-tinged “Grave” ask potential suitors for clarity instead of head games. The jazzy “Wasted” showcases her vocal dexterity while linking love and addiction (“Wasted time, my lover/Throw it back and I feel the burn”). On “Settling,” a bittersweet rumination on relationship woes, her timing is decades beyond her 22 years.

If you often feel the need to be alone with your feelings, Walker’s got you. CLEAR is the raw, uncut feed direct from her soul. “Whether it’s happiness, sadness, anger, or jealousy, I’ve never been a girl who writes in her diary,” Walker says. “Pro Tools sessions are my diary sessions.”

This Girl Got the Juice! 🍯💦✊🏾

Just discovered this girl through an Apple Music playlists. Her voice & lyrical substance really stood out to me so I put her on my “radar” list for new artists to look out for. Then I come on her to purchase some of her music and stumble upon this masterful new collection of songs. When I tell you this girl got the juice! 💦😩 There’s something so smooth, soothing, & vibrant about her voice. And the masterful storytelling in her lyrics is charming and just puts me in a different place. I can picture vivid scenes from a movie when listening to one of her songs.

Her style and production choice meld so well together, like milk and honey or sweet herbs in a tea. And I mean this of all her music but with this EP as well. I couldn’t even pick a fav from because of all 4 songs are dope (though I can see Grave and Wasted getting the most plays due to their composition). Either way, Summer is seriously a special talent from another realm! I’ve already bought all her other music and cannot wait for her next full length story. 10 ⭐️ out of five for me! Keep it up Summer Walker! Much ❤️!
