EP Review: Cassadee Pope – Summer

Cassadee Pope Banner

With her radiant personality and sun-kissed freckles, Cassadee Pope is the year-round picture of summer. Suitably, the Big Machine Label Group recording artist will release her brand new EP, Summer, on June 3. Summer is a well-rounded compilation highlighting the feelings and experiences of summer, uniqueness, and the multiple types of love.

The first song is the title track, “Summer” which has a flirty vibe that sounds just like the warm, fluttery feelings of a summer crush. Next is the brazen break-up song, “Piano.” The chorus emphasizes the main point of the track, as the punch of the lyrics mimic piano keys, “you played me just like a piano.” The delicate intro in “Kisses at Airports” grabs immediate attention, and it builds momentum as the lyrics discover the different types of kisses at airports – hello, goodbye, “I miss you”, etc.

Arguably the most relatable song is the final track on the EP; “Alien,” which expresses the isolated feeling one may encounter while not fitting into the depicted personality classifications of society. When you feel like an outsider, like you just don’t fit in, like an “Alien.” It is unique, clever and fetching.

Cassadee Pope co-wrote three out of the four songs on Summer, and she says of the finished product, “I hope the overall message from this EP is to be yourself and encouraged in life’s journey. Moments feel different as time passes, so find beauty in knowing that wherever you are will be different.”
