About a year ago, I had a chance to review the new EP by indie artist Sunday Lane, and I kind of dug it. Sunday's a young woman from Tulsa, has a classical piano background, and has a voice like Ellie Goulding. All in all, not bad attributes in my book. Her new album shows some promise. The album is a nice debut for her; it showcases her talents and shows a little bit of a stretch for her.
The first song, "Get To You," is a nice opener, bouncy indie pop, with guitar and piano. The next track, "A Little Too Young," is catchy; "A little too young to feel this old" is the refrain. Kind of appropriate since it's a more mature sound than the bubblegum pop of other gals her age. It's got some nice horns and audience participation moments that would make this a fun song live. And then it slides into "Let Me Go," which is a bit of a harder rock song and a nice change of pace. It's been bugging me for a few days what this song reminds me of. If you pick up the album, drop me a line because seriously, it's making me crazy. "Waltzing With Fire" is a piano ballad that's kind of a nice tune.
All in all, it's a nice album. If you dig chick vocalists like Sara Bareilles, Ellie Goulding, Ingrid Michaelson, or even Neko Case, check out Sunday Lane. She's already had a song hit the show "One Tree Hill" and I expect you might be hearing her more often soon.
