Marykate O’Neil – “Green Streets”

As originally published here on the Owl Mag.

The first 45 or so seconds of Marykate O’Neil’s “Green Street” draws an odd comparison to the initial twangs of Cyndi Lauper’s “Time After Time.” Right before it starts to feel like a dated ripoff, however, the song becomes an excellent demonstration in layered melody, and all is forgiven. A well-rounded, sweet pop song led by O’Neil’s bright and steady vocals, “Green Street” comes from the Brooklyn singer-songwriter’s mkULTRA EP, out on October 28th:

1. Green Street
2. Man
3. Nothing I Say or Do
4. Trouble
5. Without You
6. Happy
