Solange – ‘True’ EP

Maybe it’s because she’s Beyonce’s sister, or because she’s responsible for a few undervalued pop gems like “Sandcastle Disco” and “I Decided,” or maybe even because her first real single in a few years, “Losing You,” is so damn good, but it feels like Solange has a lot riding on True, her Dev Hynes-produced comeback EP released through Grizzly Bear’s Chris Taylor-ran Terrible Records.

True, and specifically “Losing You,” is a strong and successful statement of intent. The EP’s last six songs never quite match the opening number’s bouncy pop exuberance, but it actually comes close a few times.

Listen to True and other albums for free on Rdio.
