We’ve got some incredible news for you today, ladies and gents, Chicago’s own Ravyn Lenae has dropped the follow up to 2016’s stellar Moon Shoes, the heart melting Midnight Moonlight EP.

With six tracks and a run time of just under 20 minutes, the EP is short but incredibly rich with dream-like beats, deep lyrics, and a refreshing artistic style. As with Moon Shoes EP, Ravyn is unafraid to be daring with her direction and vocal style. As Monte’s productions bounce and jump, she handles things with an elegant and captivating grace that demands attention and playback. Ravyn is tremendously talented and the fact that she is but 18 years old speaks volumes about both her maturity and her potential.
While every track on Midnight Moonlight is fantastic and helps contribute to the overall beauty of the project, “Spice” is without a doubt its standout. Over Brian Sanborn’s extra spicy guitars, Ravyn delivers a flavorful performance with a dash of samba and a healthy dose of confidence. The shakers, the guitar, and the vocals come together to create one of 2017’s top tracks.
From "Genesis" to "Thirst", Midnight Moonlight is a beautiful breath of fresh air. Give the EP a spin above and be sure to give her Moon Shoes EP a listen if you haven't yet. For all things dope music, be sure to stay locked on EARMILK.
