the LP has two singles that highlight Steele’s ability to write candid lyrics and that showcase her warm vocals: Real
The production of both singles is flawless and the laid-back mood makes the tracks an enjoyable easy-listen. The minimalist arrangements of the tracks never get in the way of Maeve’s vocals.
