“You say you only live once, and you can’t miss out,” croons Cook on lead single “Swirl.” “You gotta be someone, you can’t live without. The story’s never ending, the drawing’s not done. Tell me what you’re thinking, is it really that fun?”
With that, Cook embarks on an EP-long introspection, sorting out identity and connection in modern humanity. All of this is splayed out wonderfully across a blended wash of heartland indie-rock, desert-folk and noir-Americana as evidenced by singles “Red Lights,” “Run” and the aforementioned “Swirl.”
