Clear : Stream Summer Walker’s Raw, Uncut Feed Direct From Her Soul
LVRN’s (Atlanta based label-collective) newest obsession, Summer Walker on 25th January 2019 released her 4 single EP CLEAR. The 10 Minutes project is the 2nd by the singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist after her debut Last Day of Summer
In a swiftly growing city full of newcomers, Atlanta native Summer Walker emerges with the raw, soulful energy that RnB devotees live for. The singer/writer/musician explores new melodies providing her instrumentalist input in production, showcasing her influence from greats such as Amy Winehouse, Erykah Badu, and Jimi Hendrix. Summer shares her moody vibes through piano and guitar along with her captivating vocal execution.
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.”
