17-year-old rising pop singer morgen kicks off with her brand new debut EP ‘Unaccompanied Minor‘
The set features previously released singles “Odd One Out”, “Sweet 16”, and “3D”, and finds morgen embracing jazzy synths, woozy vocals and the influence of alt-pop artists like Billie Eilish and Joji, while navigating the nebulous, and often isolating, experience of being a teenager in 2021. For morgen, there’s nothing “sweet” about being a teenager — there’s angst, loneliness, self-pity and uncertainty.
morgen shares, “This EP to me is honestly just a 6 song self-therapy session that covers my life, ages 15 to 17, over these past 2 crazy years. Most artists consider their work to be like a child, or something they gave birth to but ‘Unaccompanied Minor’ couldn’t be further from that. Of course, I love this EP, but I don’t feel like I own it. If anything, I owe the EP for every hour I spent crying on my floor writing songs instead of paying to go to therapy. I used ‘Unaccompanied Minor’ to help me grow through isolation, sexuality, relationships, trauma, and all that teenage bs. It created the person I am today…who is far from perfect but closer to who I want to be.”
