ALBUM REVIEW

ARCHIE

613 EP

Released September 2019

The 613 EP is a reemergence of sorts: Her name change from PSA (“Pop Star Archie”) to simply ARCHIE was intentional. As the sequel to her much-hyped Debutante EP from last year, ARCHIE explained to KEXP, it was time to “take ownership of her art,” and remove the separation between ‘Pop Star’ and herself. The Stranger highlights the “bombastic dance music and swirling triphop production” on this four-song project, while Artist Home says “her voice is disarmingly intimate.” Elicit Magazine adds that “her roster of pop bangers are expertly supplemented with hip-hop influences.”
