Scilence smashes into the music scene with the eclectic “The Solo Cup E.P.”
“Height’s” is what you’d expect to be playing in the background of the cover art for this EP
This song is a little hectic… I wasn’t quite sure at first what I was in for, but it grew on me more and more as it played on. The song relies heavily on the beat, with vocal additions spliced here and there. It is a creative track, and, as the first one on the album, it did its job of making me interested in what was to come.

Scilence climbed into her bag for this song, and I love it!
This is the longest song on the EP; it’s also one of the most enjoyable. Scilence uses a variety of screams, vocal trains, and sounds to break up the beat. It enriches the song as a whole and makes it more emotional than it might have otherwise been.
1. To Your Workplace
“To Your Workplace” is the embodiment of proving your haters wrong
Scilence is boasting about her success in “To Your Workplace,” and rightly so. Everyone needs one of those moments when they can show the people who doubted them the reality of their dreams and why they were on the wrong side. This is Scilence’s moment, and she enjoys every second of it — to the point that it makes you excited for her.

“The Solo Cup E.P” introduces Scilence to the world! All the songs on the project are unique but remain cohesive because they each have elements of her style (She wrote, recorded, mixed, and mastered every song on the EP). While I would consider her style of psychedelic music to be an acquired taste that isn’t quite what I’m used to listening to, Scilence caught my attention, which is a testament to her skills as a musician. She’s forming her niche. There’s definitely a group of people who will resonate with her sound.
While listening to this project, I couldn’t help but think about the Billie Eilishs, Playboi Cartis, 070 Shakes, and Coi Lerays of the world. Scilence doesn’t particularly sound like either of those artists; however, they exist within the same vein of music because of the beats they select and the ways they choose to rap and sing over them. Where I think Scilence differs from her counterparts is in her content. Erratically, she touches on everyday topics in ways that anyone would if they spoke their mind while under the influence of something they know would take them out. All in all, this body-of-work is an enjoyably rocky mind-f**k that is very addictive.
