Million Dollar Trailer Park shows VanNewkirk experimenting with a kind of ethereal pop that calls to mind Lana Del Rey in its willingness to be both dark and unabashedly feminine.
“Slipping Through Your Fingers,” the first song, is a decidedly glittery pop track, and VanNewkirk’s vocals are smooth.
The title track, “Million Dollar Trailer Park,” contains standout lyrics like “Started dressing in black just like you / Even wanted a shitty tattoo.”
The EP takes a turn toward a more guitar-focused, earnest sound with nostalgic love song “Cotton Candy Grapes.”
“LA is Burning,” the final track, grooves with a steady beat as VanNewkirk sings “Love you till the end of time.”
Each song displays a different angle of VanNewkirk’s creativity, and the EP is a satisfying listen from start to finish. Stream Million Dollar Trailer Park below.
