Rising pop singer/songwriter Kyan Palmer unveils his highly anticipated debut EP, Burn Mona Lisa,available on all streaming platforms today.
Named after his viral debut single, the Burn Mona Lisa EP succinctly weaves together buoyant melodies and a slow-pop sound reminiscent of Swedish singer Tove Lo. Palmer’s lyrics and sound are melted together, perfectly presenting what Palmer feels. This song truly sets off a vision for the Burn Mona Lisa EP. Palmer has used bright colours in his music video, and craftily translates these into his lyrics, poetically mixing sound and words to create a beautiful, gorgeous song.
The EP kicks off with “Burn Mona Lisa,” the viral sensation that gained over 3M+ Spotify streams and catapulted Palmer into the spotlight, and ends with a revamped hip-hop version of the track, featuring emerging NYC rapper Yuri Joness (Columbia Records) – “Burn Mona Lisa (feat Yuri Joness).” The EP also features past releases such as “Hidden Feelings,” “Can’t Help It,” “Somebody Else (with Haley Vassar),” “Don’t Talk About it (with Michael Mar),” “Poetry In Motion,” and his most recent single, “Make It Up.” The new additions to the EP include focus single “Pretend That You Love Me,” a sultry pop-laced love ballad, and “Nothing But Ghosts,” a brooding dark-pop anthem.
