Today, Goldun Egg’s new signee Lauren Dejey releases her self-produced debut EP “Kali Ma” via Goldun Egg Records. Concurrently Lauren also releases the final single from the EP ‘Yours’.
The EP is a collection of songs combining sharp lyricism with contemporary Alt-Pop and Alternative RnB.
Lauren quotes on the EP: “All together this EP is about releasing hurt, reclaiming power, rebuilding your identity and coming out stronger. When I found out about the Hindu Goddess Kali Ma, I was shocked at how her energy was almost exactly what I’d been working on. She’s described as destructive and evil, loving and nurturing, and it’s her duality that I found most inspiring. So I decided to name the EP after her. “
‘Yours’ produced by Lauren herself is an introspective RnB ballad reminiscent of Billie Eilish. Drum machines, punchy bass lines and smooth ethereal vocals are all reinforcing once again Lauren’s signature sound.
Lauren quotes on the single: “‘Yours’ is probably the most personal song I’ve written. There’s part of me that wants to let people take this song and let it be what it will be to them. The other part knows I definitely wrote it for myself as a form of therapy. For me it’s about taking back power after someone deeply hurts you in a way you could never see coming, reclaiming my body and my memories so I can stop blaming myself. I won’t let someone live in my mind, in every moment, taint every memory, I won’t be anyone’s. Sonically this is that journey from start to finish.”
Songs from the EP have received widespread strong support from tastemakers Complex, HWING, CLOUT, Alfitude, Caesar Live N Loud & Lefuturewave.
