Kameron Marlowe’s brand new self-titled EP is available now, November 13th on all streaming platforms. Take a look below as we recap our first impression of the songs off the new EP.
Here at NYCountry Swag, we pride ourselves on truly having an ear for good music and incredible singer-songwriters. We can honestly say that recording artist and songwriter, Kameron Marlowe is the real deal, and it is only just the beginning for the budding star. Marlowe just released his debut major label self-titled EP today, and you are going to want to listen, and listen again!
Beginning with his debut single and solo-write, “Giving You Up,” Marlowe takes fans on a journey through the other side of a breakup when you are finally just about over someone and moving on, and then your ex calls. He sings about putting an end to the back and forth nature of a messy breakup. The song was a hit with fans, garnering over 27 million spins on Spotify, and with its catchy tune and touching lyrics, it is clear why.
“Cause I’m giving you up, just like I did them Marlboro Lights / And I’m giving you up, the same way I did the whiskey on ice”
Marlowe transitions into another relatable song, “Sober As A Drunk.” The song is full of play on words and enticing comparisons, as you navigate the unwanted feelings of missing someone. Although comprised of melancholy lyrics, the singer finds a way to highlight the mid-tempo nature of the catchy tune.
Continuing to tug at our heartstrings and showcase vulnerability, Marlowe emotes on “Goin’ There Today” with one of the best vocal performances on the project. One of our favorites off the EP, the story-telling song walks us through the emotions of a guy trying to stay clear from the person that broke his heart. The title is a way to express avoiding memories that are associated with pain and heartache.
“I sure could go for a cup of black coffee / They serve the best at the corner cafe / But it’ll have to wait ‘cause truth is / I don’t feel like goin’ there today”
On the next song, “Burn ‘Em All,” which was also released earlier this year, Marlowe relates to the everyday man, paying homage to the blue-collar workers and all the hardworking people out there. The track perfectly highlights the singer’s gritty growl and enticing vocals. Similarly, “Hungover,” one of the most upbeat tunes on the EP features killer vocals. This time the singer aims to get away from the heartache by doing what we all have done, drinking. “I’m in the middle of a heartbreak bend,” sings Marlowe in one of the most relatable lyrics there is.
The EP ends with another impressive vocally-driven song entitled “Leavin’ to Me.” On the track, Marlowe pleads with his partner to break up with him. It’s clear that the relationship is toxic, but we all know how hard it is to leave something that we thought would be our forever. This song is just another example of how well Marlowe can emote, sing, and write.
After listening to the six songs off the EP, fans will be able to understand both the type of music that Marlowe makes and his journey to choosing these songs for his record. Laced with songs for the everyday, hardworking fans and breakup songs that everyone can relate to, Marlowe has tapped into a side of country music that all fans can appreciate.
