Emerging singer-songwriter stella. introduces his forthcoming EP with the release of its title track, A Study in Balance, that highlights stella.’s talent for combining authentic storytelling with irresistible indie-pop flair. Inspired by a late-night biking accident in Brooklyn, the track cleverly disguises an existential crisis within a lively indie-pop melody.
