5. Shotgun Tori

ST’s debut EP is heartfelt and occasionally sorrowful, but leaves you feeling like you’ve been party to something really beautiful, instead of something emo. Because even the moodiest moments are beautiful in their design – the line “but now it seems that exes are no longer taboo because my best friend and my band and my therapist are fucking you” is intimately sung over an acoustic guitar accompaniment. It taps an acoustic hook into your brain and will stay rolling around in there for a long time.
