Quarter Life Crisis
Arden Kaywin's debut is likeable pop and her songs are strong. "Me with Me" has echoes of Michelle Branch in its polished production and hummable chorus. Its single girl perspective "I don't need a lover to feel ok", feels honest.
"On the Edge" is a sedate piano ballad with the feel of a Vanessa Carlton song. "Typical" is another nice song with a cute vocal. "Quarter Life Crisis" is a nice debut and it stands out from other releases in the same vein by the quality of its songs and production.
