Cassandra Violet is a local singer who wraps her sleekly melodic vocals around a series of ebulliently poppy settings. “Pretty,” from 2017’s EP4, is an aptly titled pop valentine that’s driven by a percussive backing track and Violet’s nimbly rhythmic delivery. She’s positively charming when she pursues an “Invisible Man,” doing everything she can to snag an elusive lover’s attention. “X the Line” is a steamier dance-pop track in which Violet demonstrates that she can still draw attention and retain her melodic poise in a harder-rocking format. “Drinking Song” is a contrastingly funky slice of pure-pop soul that’s brightened by Violet’s persuasively seductive vocals. Unlike other pop singers, Violet is as equally at ease with languid singer-songwriter folk-pop as she is with more upbeat dance music. With Joe Valentine, Harry Terrell and Elizabeth Woolf.
