“Damn, I haven’t washed my hair for days,” begins pop songstress EZI on “REDEMPTION,” the first single from her forthcoming debut EP, “Another day I’m feeling lost.” Over a pulsing, synth-driven beat, the 21-year-old wastes no time getting real with her listeners: “Guess I’m an emotional wreck now,” she sings before the chorus, “Feel another letdown / Sometimes I wish I could escape / I guess it’s just what I got,” she finishes, as an infectious, danceable beat drops. Off to the races.
