Vivien Aisi, Lost in Time (EP)

(Independent) ***

Providing backing vocals for fellow Cairns artist Mc Pyrit (more on him next week) inspired PNG product Vivien Aisi to try her hand at her own EP, and the results showcase the versatility of her velvety tones. Opening the set in affirmative style is Kiss the Stars, while doo-wop meets smoky lounge music on Yesterday. The slow percussive march of Nine to Five bemoans the soul-crushing workaday routine, while piano power ballad Just Leave is the penultimate peak, and she maintains the high with the outro Lost in Time.
