“I have a couple of breakup songs,” singer-songwriter/actress Caitlin Crosby says of the material on her evocative new EP, “Save That Pillow.” “But the ones I’m most passionate about are about issues that could have an impact on someone’s life, maybe make them feel less alone. And this record doesn’t sound like anything I’ve ever done.”
The EP’s diverse, cinematic musical backdrop adds edge and intrigue to Crosby’s lyrics about women who give themselves to undeserving men, the emptiness of L.A.’s party-hardy club scene, redemption in the midst of despair, and yes, a former flame. It also showcases colors and nuances in her singing that will surprise even her longtime fans.
