EDITORS’ NOTES

Way back in 2012, Lennon Stella and her younger sister, Maisy, uploaded to YouTube a video of themselves singing Robyn’s "Call Your Girlfriend.” (Look it up. They nail it.) Unsurprisingly, the girls were quickly scooped up by Nashville—both the city, where they dabbled in country-pop, and the TV show, in which they starred until the series ended in July. On Love, me, Lennon’s first release as a solo artist, she links up with super-producer Greg Kurstin (Sia, Adele) and reconnects with her inner Robyn, relishing the magical space between lovelorn agony and dance-club euphoria. The heavy drums and fragile harmonies on “Breakaway” have serious Lorde vibes (always a good thing), and the melody in “La Di Da” will etch itself onto your brain. But the standout track has got to be “Fortress,” a breakup song-turned-empowerment anthem that hits you right in the throat.

Great 'Breakaway' from Nashville

I was totally impressed by the Stella sisters in Nashville with their amazing voices but to hear Lennon develop her "Ancho Margarita" (smokey, salty, and smooth) voice on her EP is such a buzz! I have to say, "Breakaway" is truly special... and so nice to see her voice outside the country context a little more. Well done Lennon!
