Hayley Law stars in the CW’s new show Riverdale as the keyboard player of Josie and the Pussycats. But in real life, Law makes low-key brilliant R&B-pop as hayleau. Her self-titled debut EP dropped last November a few months before the show first aired.
It’s an impressively conceived introduction for this rising actress/musician, whose six songs contain no shortage of memorable hooks and undeniable grooves. hayleau’s charisma and clear star power make themselves known. She’s sentimental and smooth on “Get Thru,” gritty and unforgiving on “Nice & Slow,” sassy and demanding on “You’re Mine.” There’s hardly a dull moment on this release, which is sure to benefit from her recent TV presence.
