Following last month’s ‘Ink’, Stevie Wolf has unveiled his Chapped Lips EP. Through seven tracks, he explores themes of bravery and vulnerability to love and anxiety, seamlessly shifting between abject hopelessness and indifference to self-love with big vibrant hooks and enthralling vocals.
Speaking on the EP, Wolf shares:
“These songs have been my best friends for the past two years. Each one I wrote at a point in time where I was torn open, and needing to throw all my feelings into a song. Like, even though all these songs are about different things and have different vibes, each one was born at a moment where I was in emotional crisis and trying to work through it. I don’t think we often take the time to realize just how difficult it is to be alive right now – these are hard days. I’ve never been more exposed and defenseless. I was ripped open and raw. Hence the name Chapped lips. But there’s so much beauty in being vulnerable, in working through your pain and exorcising your demons in an artistic release. That’s what I’m hoping the EP does for people; reaches into them and pulls out their pain, brings it into the light so it can be healed.”
