Katie Costello’s EP, The City in Me, is a perfect sample of her upcoming full-length album. Just under 20 minutes, the EP shows her emerging timeless and angelic voice. Each song presents a melancholy beauty that is perfectly accompanied by Costello’s thought-provoking lyrics. Costello’s talent is similar to the sweet, vintage melodies of Laura Jansen, Rosi Golan, or Holly Conlan.
“How Do We Know” shows Costello’s vocal range and passion, exhibiting a wisdom that belies her mere 19 years. She muses: “And I don’t know, that I’ve been the boss of myself/ I might as well get out of town and hire someone else.” The last verse’s key change makes this the most memorable song on the EP.
