Singer Carly Harpur Hollander is the perfect combination of a few of our favorite pop stars like Selena Gomez, Fifth Harmony, and Hailee Steinfeld! The fun-quirky singer recently released her EP, Turn Down Your Mind, Open Your Eyes, and it's just what we needed.
Hailing from sunny Los Angeles, Hollander can best be described as upbeat and cheery electropop, which is brilliantly seen throughout the entire EP.
Opening single, Little Less Shy, will definitely get you up and moving. The single is light-hearted and cheeky and is very hard not to love! If your diary had an anthem - this would be it! It's an inside look as to what every woman has said to their crush at one point or another. My inner-teenage self, secretly wishes this album was around when I was growing up.
Music has always been her calling as she grew up on a steady diet of classics from artists such as The Who, Bruce Springsteen, and The Velvet Underground, her music has been influenced by contemporary artists as well.
Hollander's idol for expression is the brilliant Regina Spektor and it is well seen throughout this EP. Not only does it showcase her range as a musician it highlights her resilience and unbridled positivity.
Don't let the looks fool you! It's evident that she is talented and her vocal range is something worth noting. Something tells me she will be in it for the long-haul!
