Published Mar 28, 2019Hunnah first gained some buzz with a cool Soundcloud feature with Cuco's "Lover Is a Day." Flash forward to today and the five-track Show You EP aims to build on that momentum.
The Toronto singer-songwriter's project is a reflection of her reality as an child of Ethiopian immigrants, her desire for a music career instead of a parent-approved life of academia, and coping with the recent passing of her mother of cancer. It's a life outlook that manifests itself on this EP.
The moody "In My Dreams" soars with a palpable urgency: "Stay here awhile..." Tracks like "Broken Pieces" and "Crush" display Aaliyah-esque R&B flair, while the title track carries its bouncy swag with aplomb. While no one track stands out more than the rest, Show You does exactly that — highlight a "work-in-progress" artist with the understanding that the best is yet to come. (Independent)
