Hailing from the suburb of Scarborough, Loony brings the experience of growing up in a diverse, multicultural area to bear, with a sound inspired by a range of musical genres.

A love for neo-soul, by way of Erykah Badu, is clearly present, as is an appreciation for hip-hop, pop and rock sounds. After taking a short break — her last effort was 2016's self-titled EP — Part 1 hits the ground running with the rap-sing groove of "Flock," which shouts out her stomping ground backed by a brassy groove. "Overnight" carries a stripped-down electronic organ approach, highlighted by a confident Loony speaking to the promise of alternate realities, possibilities and outcomes. "Earth Sway" bounces on a trappy, jazzy, bluesy beat — "I ain't got my name for nothin'," she maintains as she admonishes a wayward lover.
