Toronto-based singer Lowell first surfaced in 2012, as part of Apparatjik, a supergroup featuring Guy Berryman of Coldplay, Magne Furuholmen of A-ha, Jonas Bjerre of Mew, and producer Martin Terefe. The transcontinental collective teamed with Lowell to put out her mini-album, If You Can, Solve This Jumble, but soon, the pop auteur will release her first solo set of songs.

On February 25, Arts & Crafts will drop the I Killed Sara V. EP, a short-player of high-minded, electronic sing-alongs concerned with gender politics and identity issues. The 22-year-old has already shared one track from the upcoming effort (“Cloud 69,” a hefty shuffler first heard on Noisey), and now she’s let go of another. Scroll down to stream “88,” a dreamy pick-me-up that prepares you for romantic letdowns. “I let you know that I can be unfaithful,” Lowell sings. “But I like to tell you when I’m going to stray.”

I Killed Sara V. EP track list:

1. “Cloud 69″
2. “88”
3. “The Bells”
4. “Palm Trees”
5. “I Killed Sara V.”
