Comparisons to the likes of Lorde and Lana Del Rey are near inevitable, largely in thanks to E.PARKER's nonchalant vocal and penchant for lyrical hyperbole, but her sound strikes a fine line between left-field pop and brazen club stomper.
The second you presume “Girl” to be a mere echo of “Godspeed”, its shimmering keys, soft swell and cooing harmonies drop unprecedentedly into darkly glittering synth, melodramatic tones and a coercive yet unforgiving thump.
Shrugging aside the ambient chamber pop of early viral (thanks to one Catfish) hit “Thighs” and 2017’s “Runs and Rides” for a whimsically captivating confidence, the Doncaster-born, Australian-bred Hackney dweller is becoming increasingly hard to ignore as each release eclipses the previous.
Choosing this time around to deviate from her prior introspection to focus in on a muse, the track is a bold proclamation of empowerment and potential for another as opposed to appreciation for her own life journey. "I wrote this track mostly about a girl I was really fascinated by,” E.PARKER shares, “and I think it’s the first time I’ve written lyrics that focus more on my inner fantasy world than reality.”
“Although for me, I hope the larger message of the track that people take away is 'Girl, you have so much time ahead of you, so what are you going to do?'...because you can do anything.”
