It took several years for Scarlett‘s debut Thin Ice EP to reach its final state. It is the result of the will to give shape to emotional sensitivity through a very rich range of chords and sounds, and to sometimes embrace the “Sad Boy” or “Heartbroken” aesthetic, such as in the track « No Meaning ».
Most of all, Thin Ice is the final result of a self-questioning journey that illustrates, through the lyrics, doubt, uncertainty, identity, and, in the end, coming out as queer. It is achieved through hidden messages (« Ran », « No Meaning ») or explicit lyrics (« Lights in the Sky »).
Thin Ice is both the personal and artistic statement of coming out, but it is also a very shy and modest manifesto that uses dual meanings and introspective dialogue to illustrate the feeling of being torn apart, and accepting one’s identity.
