It’s the sound of a promising young talent maturing into her own signature style.

Ravyn is a very promising new artist, she has amazing songs and a incrideible voice and also she was able to give with this EP a great performance of retro soul psychedelic vibes.

Backed up by some gorgeous production from Steve Lacey, Lenae makes it all about her with ease in no small part due to her impressive vocals that are utterly enthrall in nature. If you’re unsure of where to start then you can’t go wrong with Computer Luv, where Lenae‘s harmonies and her blunt approach to internet romance are undeniably admirable. Whether you listen to her or not, get ready to see Lenae‘s name everywhere over the next few years.

Could have been so much better.

Edit: Kinda grew on me, but i still have cons about this short EP.

Fans of Frank Ocean, Jorja Smith or Erykah Badu (she sounds like a hybrid of the latter two) will all love this EP. Often, Lenae isn't saying anything at all while still being able to impress vocally. The "woop doot doot doo-woo" that's repeated throughout "Sticky" and the "woo-ah, woo-ah!" in the chorus of "Closer, (Ode 2 U)" mean nothing but provide excellent hooks. These vocalizations are a great representation of this EP's effortless breeziness.
