A couple of months ago I posted a review of Taryn Leia Prescott’s album Songs of the Bride. Well, the talented musician/singer/songwriter has done it again in her new album Young and Free; five songs described as “an unabashedly enjoyable tribute to young love”.
Given the different theme, the music and lyrics are also different in style to Bride, with some humour, a more upbeat flavour and a strange sweetness that’ll make you drop what you’re doing and listen. Along with young love, Taryn also explores some interesting instrumental arrangements and even goes demi-bluesy on track 2, Thought Train. The last track, Meant to be, oozes with childhood sweetness and a heart-aching violin solo.
A small, deep and beautiful sound for the summer.
