The EP opens with the duo’s debut single “Drop,” an infectious song that compares their love hate relationship with a boy to music. They find themselves sick of hearing the same old tune but they can’t get enough of the feeling because it’s too strong and reminiscent of the beat dropping in their favorite song.
The duo showcases their perfect harmony on the track “Red Lights,” a song about how the girls sometimes wish they could turn off the world so they can be alone.
When it comes to love, sometimes the simpler the relationship, the better it is. There’s no need for the fanfare when it comes to the teenage songstresses. They want a “Lazy Love” where all they need is the company of their significant other and they’re happy.
“Thunder” is a futuristic song where the ladies liken their infatuation with a boy to nature.
The song “Fall” is an optimistic tune that showcases the duo’s powerful yet light vocals. They don’t mind if the sky should fall because they know that everything will be alright in the end because there’s gold at the end of the rainbow.
Chole x Halle first gained recognition on YouTube by covering various songs over the past few years, however, it is nice to hear the girls perform their own original music. Their voices complement each other perfectly and it’s hard to believe that the songstresses aren’t even 18 yet. They have a maturity and uniqueness that is rare in the music industry these days. I am excited to hear more from the duo.
