Erin Côté: Crazy Ex Girlfriend
(Independent / 20 November 2021)
I wasn't crazy
Until you showed me how
Is all that I know...
Erin Côté's vocals her melodic and nimble, and she sings it straight while the lyrics detail the undoing of the narrator - a victim of love. The sentiments are those anyone can relate to.
The music is bouncy synth driven pop with a catchy beat and refrain. It's typical of the rest of Côté's EP, Cheeky Saint. The sound is earworm modern pop, and words with wit and wisdom. Each of the four tracks offers something different, from the sunny Stranger on the Skytrain to the darker mood of Diamonds and Gold, a song about greed, or Moon Madness, a wistful thought for the one that got away.
A native of Vancouver, British Columbia, Erin studied musical theatre at Capilano University, and works as an actress and dancer as well as a singer.
