Mandy Groves released her widely anticipated BLAME (EP), a dreamy blend of Pop, R&B, and Soul, with a hint of heartbreak and a refreshing wave of self-accountability. “In the process of writing these songs and creating them, I gained a lot of perspective and I also got closer to closure with the issues I wrote about,” she said.
An ode to the joy she found in letting go and moving on, the project lets its listeners in on how she dealt with loss and the freedom of acceptance. Written over the span of one month, the 5 track EP touches on the various stages of grief through lenses of courage and maturity. In “Mourning” she empathizes with finding out that people aren’t exactly who they say are, but in “Guilty” she tells us that she’s willing to take the blame for any of those lost relationships—romatic, platonic, professional—because maturity is taking responsability for ourselves. True power lies in knowing what’s good for oneself and removing the toxicity from your life.
“Healing is always a work in progress but over the short month of working on this EP, I learned a lot about myself and I was able to apply the things I was learning in real time. I plan to keep moving forward at this same speed and with the same strength I’ve found through this project.”
