Critically acclaimed German born pop iconoclast bülow releases her anticipated new EP, Damaged Vol. 2 [Republic Records/ Wax Records] today.
Of Damaged Vol. 2, bülow comments, “Writing Vol 2 has given me closure to my teenage years, and especially my high school experiences. These songs reflect my life over the past few years and allow me to move on to adulthood. I know I’m not done being a kid, but it feels good to finally put these fears and emotions to rest”
To advance the EP, bülow shared “SAD AND BORED” [feat. Duckwrth] last Friday. “SAD AND BORED” was met with rave reviews, PAPER saying, “It’s the perfect pop study in contrasts, and further confirms bülow as an artist to watch with razor-sharp wit to boot.” As well as HillyDilly calling her “one of the brightest new talents in pop.”
In addition to “SAD AND BORED,” the new EP boasts the stark and soulful “You & Jennifer” as well as the shimmering and vulnerable “Honor Roll”, full track listing below. This summer, she takes this enigmatic sound on the road, launching a full-scale European festival takeover. Check out the confirmed dates below.
After releasing her powerful debut Damaged Vol. 1, bülow has instantly resonated with critics and new fans alike. The tracks “Like This Guy”, “Lines”, and “Not A Love Song” have clocked over 30 million streams, reaching the Spotify Global Viral chart and earning praise as “beautifully crafted” (NME), “pop genius” (Noisey), and a “star in the making” (Pigeon & Planes). A child of the globe, the bright-eyed young singer has grown up in five countries including Canada, Germany, the UK, the US, and is currently finishing high-school in The Netherlands. Although bülow has only just begun her musical journey with these three sentimental, playful, and haunting tracks, “Damaged Vol 1” stands tall as an impressive flag-bearer for things to come.
