L.A.’s multi-masterful August Eve writes, produces, directs, dances (or danced ballet) and sings like the credits are about to roll in a David Lynch film. On her self-released new “You Already Know” single—out now!—she delivers the blue and the velvet, too, with two songs that start at sad and dissolve into delirious devastation. “You Already Know” is like a torch song for the last person left at last call at a bar where the only light is smoke through neon, delivered with total commitment and conviction. (There’s a crooked little synth flourish at the end that sounds like the last moments of The Idiot—and in a way, there’s a little of that Bowie-Iggy sense of extravagantly doomed romance here, too.) B-side “Know Better” offers no relief, either. It’s a different kind of heartbreak, this time with all the hard edges melted away—a 80s-adjacent pop ballad with more than a little Kate Bush or Julee Cruise mystique. Get “You Already Know” here—because now you do know—and watch for a similarly self-realized EP coming later this year.
