Meg Myers has built up a loyal live following over the past couple of years but the gloomy diva is ready to take things to the next level with her stellar Make A Shadow EP. The satisfying rage and rawness of her old material is represented on bile-spewing lead single “Desire” and bone-rattling rock anthem “Go”, but there’s more nuance and depth to be found as you delve further into the five-song set.
The Los Angeles-based singer/songwriter sounds unusually fragile on the excellent title track, pleading “take my hands and make a shadow” before guitars start to churn in the howling chorus. It’s hard to pick a favorite but the emotional honesty of “Heart Heart Head” — combined with the, at times, almost orchestral production — stands tall among the cohesive and compelling collection of tracks.
