It’s bold of Charlotte Lawrence to assume we’ve recovered enough from her self-titled EP Charlotte, which dropped just last month (we haven’t, by the way) because she has just dropped an acoustic version, too! As if the original wasn’t emotional enough, American singer-songwriter Charlotte Lawrence is pulling us through our feelings with this latest release, Charlotte Acoustic. Just when you think Charlotte’s incredible music couldn’t get any more moving, along comes Charlotte with an acoustic version that screams, “Sit down, get your tissues out, I’m not done yet!”
Charlotte, by Charlotte, was a hauntingly authentic and hard-hitting yet still feel-good EP. It features seven sublimely written and performed tracks, from feel-good dance bops to ethereal calmness and everything in between! When it dropped in March, we lost our minds here at The Honey POP HQ. You can check out our reaction here! Charlotte Lawrence is now serving us up these incredible tracks with a twist with her eight-track Charlotte Acoustic EP. We’re now going to need eight to ten business days, a very large slab of chocolate, and probably a hug to recover! They are divine in every single way. The acoustic arrangements allow Charlotte’s haunting vocals to shine. We can pick up every vocal crack, every stylistic choice, and every fiber of emotion. It’s the musical equivalent of hearing a pin drop, and, honestly, that’s what her lyrics and voice deserve.
Now then, time for a THP pop-quiz! Have you been paying attention? How many tracks were on the original Charlotte EP? Okay, and how many did we say are on Charlotte Acoustic? That’s right, besties, there’s an extra track on Charlotte Acoustic! 2019’s ‘Navy Blue (Acoustic version)’ is an unexpected addition to the new EP, and we are beside ourselves!
