Slant Magazine
The singer unravels her typically unbothered persona, expressing a newfound degree of doubt and romantic turmoil.

de Casier has made her ambitions clear: she is ready to fill bigger boots. With Still, she may just do so.

After finding more success as a writer than in her own work, it’s unclear if Erika de Casier will soon get the visibility as an artist that she deserves, or even wants. But she can sing, write, and produce some of the best pop music of today. Without a doubt, she’s still got it.

The Line of Best Fit

Still ... brims with just as much character as her last two projects, its very title plotting it alongside them in a continuum.

This new mix is chill, kinda like a modern spin on that old-school R&B vibe but with some fresh twists that keep it interesting. I'd give it a solid 7/10 for being smooth and catchy, but not something that completely blows me away.
