'Paper Crowns' is a textbook example of generic. Everything this EP has to offer has been done before by countless others, and done much better, might I add. Each track just sort of exists without much to offer up to the listener. Even Tove Styrke couldn't save it on "Stuck." The lyrics are so generic that it makes me wonder why they're even here. They don't tell any story, at least none that hasn't been done to death. The production is so lackluster as well. This whole EP sounds as if someone put every EDM/pop song from 2012-2016 into a computer and made it spit out an average at us. Everything is just so bland.

I will admit, however, that nothing is inherently "bad." There's nothing here that has been done incorrectly or in such a way that makes the songs unlistenable. It's just entirely uneventful. "Drunk as Hell" is the highlight, but only barely. It's at least fun in its blatant by-the-books demeanor.
