RATING: 4/5



Today, ex-Disney Channel star Bridgit Mendler has released her second EP, Nemesis, and there's nothing Disney about it. Instead, it's insanely mature and she seems to have found her voice and her sound.

The Imogen Heap-influenced "Atlantis (ft. Kaiydo)" features a shivering beat with piles of harmonies, organs, and synths - almost sounding like she's underwater. "Library" is soft as well but in a different way, with an acoustic intro and a slightly old school hip-hop beat and even has some beautiful Frank Ocean-esque moments vocally. "Do You Miss Me At All," a highlight, is a clear and dynamic pop song. Both melodically and lyrically, it sounds like a slight throwback to early 2000s, but with whistles and piercing percussion, the production is amazing and undoubtedly up-to-date.

Mendler seems to be extremely comfortable with herself as an artist - and the confidence shines through on the EP. Her voice is smoothly calm and has an effortless jaw-dropping quality. "Snap My Fingers," is a sassy track, once again exhibiting Mendler's self-assurance. On Nemesis, Mendler blends pop, R&B, and alternative influences, but she is most definitely not lost.

Along with the EP, she has also released her video for "Do You Miss Me At All," which features shots of her singing through windows and dancing in the distance.
