D.C. Songbird Gabe Clarke aka Zeroni showcases her talent in her Neo Soul 4-track EP: Perdido, where none of the tracks are titled.

Peridido translates to ‘lost’ in English. The fact that Zeroni chose no title for any track may correlate with the idea that each song is a ‘lost’, ineffable emotion pertaining to a previous time in her life.
With a Neo-Soul vibe, the Pieces Songbird takes you on a journey of love clichés: the endless rollercoaster of emotions, anxious and toxic humanly connections, romance, and fantasy love – referencing Disney princesses such as Alice in Wonderland, Snow White, and Sleeping Beauty.
A pink foundation sitting below a sketch of a woman’s body made of flowers, stems, and pedals in the album artwork is symbolic for Zeroni opening up a natural side of herself through this EP. Though flowers are fragile, it recognizes her empowering femininity, being able to hold in something beautiful and finally finding the courage to share that beauty with the world.
