Nemesis is the second EP by American actress, singer, and songwriter Bridgit Mendler. The EP was released on November 18, 2016, through Black Box Media Agency. For the release of Nemesis, Mendler partnered with Fanjoy Co to create a box set of the EP, including an exclusive physical copy signed by Mendler and other items.
In an interview with MTV's Deepa Lakshmin, Mendler said about the EP "I feel like I've poured the most of myself of anything I've done into this project. That's been a very therapeutic process." She also talked about her fans watching her grow up on TV, and hoping that Nemesis would show them a "more well-rounded perspective" of who she is now, four years later. She also called the EP "a collection of regret songs."
RJ Frometa of Vents Magazine labeled the EP a "stunning collection of four self-assured and bittersweet relationship songs that entwine intelligent pop, soul and R&B."CelebMix's Jonathan Currinn stated that the EP is "something totally different and totally unexpected" as well claiming that Mendler "is definitely channeling some indie-pop." He went on to say "[Nemesis] isn't your average EP, well it's not even your average Bridgit Mendler packaged pop songs. Instead it's a grower EP, one that has definitely put a stamp on who she is becoming. She is definitely putting a mark on the music industry, getting herself out there, and proving that she can experiment and release music that she wants to."[unreliable source?] Erica Russell of PopCrush claimed "the honey-voiced pop star explores a stormier sound and moodier themes, weaving a tale of post-heartbreak self-reflection through a deliciously atmospheric soundscape of saccharine trip hop ("Atlantis"), folksy soul ("Library"), hazy R&B ("Do You Miss Me At All") and groovy alt-pop ("Snap My Fingers")."[unreliable source?]
