I stumbled upon Ravyn Lenae while out shopping. Her multidimensional beats and dreamy voice were playing over the speakers, and I had to find out who she was. I was excited to find a recent EP, and decided immediately she had to be apart of Sunday Album Review. The young Chicago native has unlimited potential, and is sure to please even the most skeptical of music critics.
The Artist and their
album EP name: Ravyn Lenae – Midnight Moonlight
Heard of/listened to before? No and No
What I did while listening: Scrolled through Tumblr
Better suited for: This EP has an incredibly unique feel, like Nao meets Violents meets something else entirely. It’d be great for adding flavor to a long commute, but don’t think that you can’t also swing to the beats later in the day at an intimate party.

1. Last Breath
“I’m only lonely/
when the night won’t hold me/
I long for a warning/
won’t you let me know”
Songs and musical artists this reminds me of:
Would I recommend it? Yes, but only if you’re into alternative R&B. If that’s not one of your favorite genres, this is not the EP for you. Regardless of your personal preferences however, Lenae is incredibly talented, which is something we should be able to agree on. The production is phenomenal, her voice has a soothing quality to it which contrasts with wavy, funky beats. She’s an up and comer, one that needs to be integrated into your playlists immediately.
