Lucy & La Mer - To The Skies E.P.
The album kicks off with the track "Oak Tree" and it starts with kick-ass strings and then the piano kicks in and then those vocals so beautiful, what a magnificent voice she has, so pure and she has such a beautiful tone as well. The lyrics paint such an awesome landscape that makes you want to be there, especially if Lucy is there and yes I'd wait for you Lucy!
The next track is "Rainy Days" and the sound of the rain is a great way to start, I can so relate to the lyrics especially about spilling your coffee twice. The harmonica is such a great choice of instrument in this song as it gives the song an intensity and almost melancholy feel that makes this song awesome. It really highlights that Lucy has a maturity and understanding of music beyond her years and that is most likely down to pure natural talent. My favourite song on the album.
We then move onto "Roomie Wanted" and I must say that Lucy & LaMer really know how to tell a story with music! I love how she uses music so effectively, the drumbeat in this song is fucking awesome and I love it, just love it. This song highlights that they are true muso's, as it takes serious talent to create a story with just instruments alone! This song is an absolute joy!
The next song is "Wanderlust" which is an awesome song, the piano and accordion start are very clever then when the vocals start it dominates this track and along with the amazing lyrics it is an amazing song, I love it Lucy's voice is pure bliss on this song, it is an absolute joyous song that seems to fill this little monkey with so much happiness argh I am so happy, I can't stop smiling. It really captures something real and tangible and all this from a song, genius.
The last track is title track "To The Skies" and from it's piano playing start again, like so many of Lucy and LaMer's songs the beauty is in the simplicity of the music, it takes real talent to know what to leave out and this song is poignant and has a quiet intensity that grows on you. I think it's my new favourite!
All up Lucy & LaMer's E.P. "To The Skies" is a masterful album by accomplished musicians who know how to craft great songs and the vocals are just superb. I really can't fault this album it is truly magnificent! I highly recommend it, now go and get it now. You can check them out here and you can buy this E.P here.
