First Impressions: Embracing Beautiful Flaws With Stacy Barthe
December 11th may seem oh so far away, but Stacy Barthe is wasting little to no time letting us get a feel for her new EP, P.S. I Love You , which will be released on John Legend's Motown sublet label HomeSchool.
If you remember (and if you feel as I did) it was quite easy to fall in love with Barthe's tone and vibe by way of her Sincerely Yours set and this year's, The In-Between EP. Barthe hasn't been lollygagging around as she has been zipping around, busy as ever, as recently she has lent her pen to a few tracks on Alicia Keys' upcoming album, Girl On Fire.
Now the Atlanta native is squeezing in some personal attention by letting us pass go and collect $200 with single, "Flawed Beautiful Creatures". The song is top-notch, raft with wonderful lyrics ("we gotta lose it to find it") that reflect on self-love and seeing things from the other's perspective to find a sense of self within. Warmly it hugs you in its drifting dreamy guise and it makes for yet another winner from Barthe, in fact, I like to say this is her best song yet, as I am a sucker for a positive number especially in these bleak days. Feel the serenity and take some time to give yourself a little boost of motivating uplift by letting Barthe be your personal cheerleader on "Flawed Beautiful Creatures".
