Featuring four sparkling songs, including the excellent single ‘Paper Heart’, the new self-titled EP from The Angeles Project is out now. As the name suggests, the project is based in Los Angeles, California and is fronted by the talented beauty of songwriter Mimi R.
With the assistance of producer Andrew Brassell, Mimi has crafted a collection of earthy, hazy songs which befit the city of their birth. It’s one of the most evocative cities in the US, with the close connection of dry, dusty streets with the glitz and glamour of Hollywood. It’s precisely this contrast which The Angeles Project try to dig down to in their songs.
Sincere lyrics tell achingly relateable stories and do a great job of painting a picture of the city for the listener. Whether it’s a picture of aspiration or lack thereof depends on your view of what’s being said. One thing is for sure though – this is some beautifully mounted songwriting.
