Looking for new music to listen to? Look no further than Maggie Schneider’s new EP, Tinted Glasses. The four-track EP is fun, catchy pop, produced by Rian Dawson from All Time Low.
Written for the Atlanta venue, The Masquerade, “695 North Avenue” is fun, upbeat track with the slightest hint of rock influence. While the instrumentals give off a vibe of good times and optimism, the lyrics give off a feel of nostalgia, even for those who have never been to The Masquerade of know what the song is about.
The next song on the EP is “Chuck Bass,” a song clearly about the infamous character from “Gossip Girl.” Don’t be fooled, though. The feminist tune is about empowering women and not to be fooled by the wealth and money of those who might be like Chuck Bass.
The title track, “Tinted Glasses” tones it down, with acoustics instrumentals and honest lyrics about a relationship near its end. Ending the EP is “Break,” featuring Alex Crain, another slower ballad. Schneider and Crain’s voices go perfectly together, and it’s a strong song to finish out the EP with.
Overall, Tinted Glasses is bright, honest, and a refreshing take on a pop EP. For those who are fans of pop, this EP is a must-listen.
