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.

Track Name: Bad Behavior
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
Track Name: Rocky Bottom
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!
Track Name: Tell Me Texas
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?
Track Name: Mirror Power
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?
Track Name: Edge Of
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
