Backed by lo-fi and winding beats courtesy of Bare Beats, neo-soul singer MeaKoom’s latest EP is a journey of self-care. Appropriately titled ME, the singer’s lyrics were largely improvised over Bare Beats lush production, giving the EP a sort of stream of consciousness journal vibe. Over 3 tracks (and instrumentals of the same), MeaKoom re-learns to love herself in the wake of a breakup.. “I don’t miss you today,” she sings over the hauntingly spare “IDMY.” The highlight is the EP’s centerpiece, “Move,” where MeaKoom’s strongest songwriting meets deft and focused production. A sample of MLK’s 1967 speech to Barratt Junior High School in Philadelphia anchors it. “Don’t allow anybody to make you fell that you’re nobody.” Truer words…
