Tiny Truths

Each track on Emily Shirley's five-song EP reveals a piece of her world, the local's pensive indie pop weaving threads of melodic musings ("Taking the Sun," "Earnest") and personal quirk ("Flowers," "Blueberry Song"). When she ponders, "I find the quiet hours hold the most truth" on "Quiet Hours," the thought lingers seductively, but when she sings, "If earnest is a curse, then I'm pretty much screwed," it's laugh aloud time.
