Actress and GRAMMY® nominated Singer-Songwriter Rebecca Pidgeon has released a new three-song EP called “Circus Delirium”. The EP produced by Thomas Bartlett (St. Vincent, Sufjan Stevens, and YokoOno) is an enchanting set filled with emotion that is conveyed mostly through Rebecca’s often soft yet alluring vocals. On “Underwater Boys” the lyrics are as cheeky as the music with the jazzy pop music flitting about. The title track “Circus Delirium” is dark and enchanting and a bit heavier in tone than the first track. We end with “Sudden Exposure To Light” a track that highlights Rebecca’s vocals best alongside minimal necessary instrumentation, closing out “Circus Delirium” the short but very fulfilling three track EP.
