5 ToveThe album is split into three chapters—sex, love, and pain—which showcases her desire to fully display the emotional roller coaster of her life. “There are a couple of very dark songs on the album,” she says, “but there have been a lot of euphoric moments.” This is reflected on the playful, drum clap-heavy “My Gun,” which details a confident attempt at seduction in the verses balanced out by a vulnerable chorus; the seductive and sensual “Talking Body”; and the galloping, almost euphorically raw “Timebomb.” Perhaps the song that perfectly showcases her skills as a songwriter and performer is “Moments,” an uplifting stomper that flits effortlessly from raw introspection to emotional honesty to the song’s almost darkly humorous kiss-off.
