The alternative-pop project Pallas Athene was created by music artist Breanna Johnston. Her new self-titled EP was released on October 11th and features five tracks that Breanne calls "super dark" and "liberating." She starts out with the slow, piano ballad "Through Hell," as she layers music and sound in order to give her music depth and emotion. The monotone "Saturn's Return" is hard to grab hold of, but the album closer "In Silence" draws you in with the perfect mixture of beats and electronics.
