While I’ve mostly overcome my tendency to leave important sh*t till the last minute, selecting a Halloween costume brings out the procrastinator in me. (This year I hit a new low, by just throwing on a pair of cat ears as an excuse to go to a party.) The chick to whom Booth newcomer Script Shepherd dedicated this lead EP single, on the other hand, has it easy—she can just go as herself. Premiering, along with its official visuals, on our front page, this upbeat R&B jam finds the Montreal-born, Brooklyn-based singer offering social commentary thinly veiled beneath a seasonal theme. With Grammy Award-winning beat crew The Lion’s Share‘s blistering soul-rock grooves as his backdrop, Script laments the fact that women feel compelled to cake on so many cosmetics that, by the time they’re ready to step outside, you can barely recognize them. Feeling it? While Shepherd’s forthcoming EP as yet lacks both a title and a drop date, fans can stay keep it locked for the latest from this North of the Border buzzmaker.
