Review by Anna Maria Stjärnell
Shona Foster’s debut is a multi-faceted record with plenty of good songs.
The opener Number 34 rests on a choppy beat and has a superlative vocal by Foster. It’s a little like Regina Spektor.
Dancing Leaves shows Foster at her best, a sinuous ballad with a vocal to be awed by. She has a way with these things.
Bad Intentions is a cool up-tempo ditty with a melody that seems to unfurl nicely. It’s almost jazzy and Foster’s vocal really delivers the necessary cool reserve.
Collision closes the promising album on a cool note, Foster’s vocal swooping over an assemblage of neat instrumentation.
It’s a confident closer to a wonderful album.
