Pittsburgh singer-songwriter Paging Doctor Moon drops expansive EP Bug, a collection of five tracks that ebbs and flows through various emotions experienced in a doomed relationship, led by layered vocal lines and hazy synth-tinged production.
Opening with the soft, introspective quality of “ Come Home,” to the melodic and minimal “I Just Wanna,” the EP establishes the rising singer’s vocal range as one of her biggest strengths carrying thoughtful, poetic song writing.
“No Good,” sweeps the production into something more anthemic before slowing things down with stand-out number “Can’t Fall Asleep,” a sweet and soothing melody that brims with a warm and calming energy.
Final track “Stay,” makes for a soaring highlight that leads the intricately crafted EP into an explosive finish framed by lacerating riffs and vocal versatility that goes from honeyed to bold and back again in a perfect encapsulation of the peaks and valleys that record is stocked with.
Written over a year when musician Kirsten Heibert felt like she had no stability in her life, Bug produced by Julian Giaimo is brought to life by cathartic vibes that keep you grounded yet give you room to dream.
Making music that’s comforting and vulnerable at once, multi-instrumentalist and song writer Heibert’s journey to healing a broken heart through writing music in 2009 has brought to this point over a decade later – with an established creative identity as Paging Doctor Moon that forges easy connections through relatable message.
