Hailing from Portsmouth, NH, Chelsea Paolini writes on her Bandcamp bio that she's a "... guitarist , electric and some acoustic .songwriter about love, life and weird problems. kind of a singer." She's definitely correct, as her latest EP, Medicine Cabinet, has some absolutely killer guitar work, which seems rare for a mostly pop record. By pop, we don't mean modern Swiss produced pop, but 90's alternative power pop. Paolini is definitely a rock artist at heart, no matter how catchy these songs get. And they are certainly catchy in their own little awkward way. As for Paolini's claim that she's "kind of a singer," we have to agree, but we mean that in the best possible way. Paolini isn't the kind of singer that would ever make it on a big televised competition, and she's certainly not a traditionally great singer. However, she has her own really unique and interesting voice that will force itself into you with an insane amount of charm.
