Jesse Rolfe Such a unique, sparse-yet-intricate, moody vibe throughout. Favorite track: Mirror Power.

Pierre Conrad Bad Behavior is why you show up (more on that later), but this EP is such a great debut for Maya. It's confident, dance-able, and has some great lyrics. "Edge Of" (the track) strikes that balance between sad and hopeful that I always love. But back to "Bad Behavior"... the build-up.. the layering... it's so perfect. The way the bass is sparse on the first verse makes the second verse that much better. The synths on the second chorus pack a punch the first chorus doesn't hint at. Buy this EP! Favorite track: Bad Behavior.

Bad Behavior 03:20
Shouldn't have dug my nails in again I should know Leaves a mark on the skin But I caught myself holding your hand Under the table Shouldn't have dug the letters in Now I know I have no control of my Bad behavior Through the crack in the curtain I soak in your certain Bitter lonesome flavor Honest bad behavior Bad behavior

Rocky Bottom 02:52
Have you heard of Rocky Bottom? You'd be sorry to know him A cowboy, a liar Rides along the midnight hour A lone star In his sorry state Taciturn A slow burn I know now it's true You shouldn't let cowboys lie to you! On his high horse Where he sits Addicted to flavored spit Wears any glove That seems to have the right fit A lone star In his sorry state Taciturn A slow burn I know now it's true You shouldn't let cowboys lie to you!

Tell me Texas, flat and wide What was it that made him cry? Was he moved or just blue? I feel it slip away from you Well I know its none of mine But I sit and wonder why Was it tears in his eyes? Or just a visine lie? Tell me you think I'm doing fine I'm feeling strange along the ride To the cold glass I press my hand To scan the flat of the land Well I know its none of mine Still I sit and wonder why Was it tears in his eyes? Or just a visine lie?

Mirror Power 03:37
Is it wrong I've got a new life Am I strong? Or haven't realized Empty shell with piece of dirt Looking into eyes that burn Same old stranger after hours Leaning into mirror power I've got the vision Or is it yours? Surface prison Nothing is pure Put it down and pick it up Put it in a plastic cup Same old stranger after hours Leaning into mirror power Pay a visit to that piece of glass Have a vision and let it pass Mirror mirror on the wall Do you tell me any truth at all?

Edge Of 02:36
Steal a glance, wax poet Dipping again down into it Light a candle for me I want to see the place I made in you I give it a new name But I know it's the same On the edge of On the edge of On the edge of Wears her name on his neck A ring of gold, it's love I've been told I wanna know that you still care Under your pillow a lock of my hair I gave it a new name But it's always the same On the edge of On the edge of On the edge of
