ALBUM REVIEW: FLETCHER // you ruined new york city for me EP


If you have not yet heard about upcoming pop sensation, FLETCHER, she is about to become your next obsession.  Described as “exciting,” “non-conformist,” and “catchy,” FLETCHER is taking the pop world by storm.  Her hit song, “Undrunk” has had over 100 million streams, was the number one most added song in the Top 40, and spent six weeks on the Billboard Hot 100.  If none of this has caught your attention, maybe you just need to listen to her debut EP, you ruined new york city for me, and let the songs do the talking.

On you ruined new york city for me, FLETCHER gives us an honest look at her first love, describing what went wrong and how hard it can be to move forward.  She explains, “I wore my heart on my sleeve with this project.  It’s been important for me to show myself and others that it is okay to be both vulnerable and aggressive at the same time.  It means we’re human beings.”

Indeed, the tracks are relatable and inspiring, with FLETCHER’s vocals giving the songs a strong and resilient edge.  The EP begins with the witty, “If You’re Gonna Lie,” where FLETCHER mentions, “If you’re gonna lie, at least do it in my bed.”  She would rather stay with her unfaithful partner than be alone.  On the next track, “Undrunk,” FLETCHER takes us back to a night of regrets, where she wants to undo everything that transpired.  We have all had those moments.  The third and fourth tracks, “All Love” and “About You,” summon feelings that we have experienced, but would never say out loud.  After hearing, “The way you kiss her on her neck with that look in your eyes / Do it right in front of me kinda makes me wanna die,” on the third track, we cannot help but empathize.  The EP then concludes with the buoyant-sounding, “Strangers,” which summarizes the state of the relationship you have with your ex after the two of you call it quits.

You definitely feel as if you were present for all of the scenarios presented throughout the EP.  FLETCHER truly has a gift for songwriting; visuals easily appear in your head when you listen to the lyrics.  It is weird to think that this is only an introduction to FLETCHER and that this is just the beginning of her career.  Where will she take us next?

You can stream you ruined new york city for me on sites like Spotify and Apple Music.
