EDITORS’ NOTES

This Toronto singer/songwriter’s scintillating debut matches her extraordinary voice to intrepid, evocative production. The twisting, anxious soundscape of “Shutter Island” captures the anger and indecision of being caught in a ruinous relationship, while trap hi-hats spin like chrome rims on “Gatekeeper,” a sinister tale of abuse hiding behind promised riches. The studio trickery never overshadows Reyez’s power and versatility though, and Amy Winehouse comparisons are inescapable as she furiously flushes a poisonous ex from her heart on “Figures.”
