"SORRY" has already begun to draw advance raves, withELLE hailing its "battering guitars, shrieking, sinful vocals, and a fiery woman taking names and extinguishing her insecurities."Cosmopolitan declared her as "the singer-songwriter, alt-rock heir apparent to Alanis Morissette," praising "SORRY" as "equal parts haunting and headbanging."
Myers' sophomore EP, "MAKE A SHADOW," was released in early 2014 to widespread acclaim, withStereogum declaring the EP's startling single, "Desire," to be "something that is as sweet as it is unsettling." "Desire" proved a Top 20 favorite at Alternative radio outlets nationwide, while the track's evocative companion video – hailed byNoisey as "simply stunning" – has earned more than 3 million views at www.youtube.com/watch?v=bR5u9jb0PJE. In addition, the EP's "The Morning After" and "Make A Shadow" both reached the top 5 on Hype Machine's "Most Popular" chart, with the latter track ranked among Amazon's "50 Best Songs of 2014."
Acclaimed as a provocative and dynamic live act, Myers spent much of the next year on the road, headlining clubs, supporting such artists as Royal Blood, Broods, and Pixies, and stealing the show at an array of top festivals. Rolling Stone praised Myers as one of the "Best Things We Saw At Lollapalooza," while theNew York Times applauded her set at NYC's Governors Ball for its "seething hard-rock riffs like early P.J. Harvey" and Myers' "imprecations at the destructive power of love and desire."
