Her latest single "Play Me (Don’t)" is ENTITY's is off of her forthcoming EP Visions in Black. ENTITY's music explores concepts centered around relationship turmoil, unresolved grief, and acceptance.
"Play Me (Don't)" is the story of a torrid love affair, one in which two ex-lovers try to reunite but ultimately fall apart. ENTITY confides, "Play Me (Don't) was the second song that I wrote and it basically screams 'Don't do this again to me! Don't lead me on and think we are going to fall back in love and spend the rest of our lives together.' That was definitely a pattern that her and I went through back in our relationship, so this song was very much an expression of that anxiety." The track is an enthralling kaleidoscope of sound, featuring hints of pop, rock and electronic music artfully blended together. Her soaring ethereal vocals overhang dungeon-infused synths and layered EDM beats culminating into a chaotic explosion of sound that is angsty and pleading, yet irresistible.

Inspired by the struggle to find an enduring love and coping with the lingering heartache that can last after a break-up, ENTITY's promising new debut EP is as sonically fresh as it is thematically relatable. With more music to come, we can't wait to hear more of what's in store for this inspiring storyteller and artist.
