Her third EP ‘Ultra Lounge’ was released in late 2022 to critical acclaim. Across six tracks, it straddles a balance between driving and catchy rock numbers and more introspective ballads, retaining the same lush and layered instrumentation throughout. It was mixed and mastered by Wade Keighran (ELVIS (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack), Wolf & Cub). It also features guest vocals from Jonnine Standish (HTRK , Jonnine).
