lately I feel EVERYTHING demonstrates that there’s more than one string to WILLOW’S bow, with naïve and Come Home presenting a real maturity to her songwriting. The slower tempo of the former allows its creator’s substantial vocal range to shine, while Come Home pairs a more reigned-in sound with some biting riffs and a dark ambiance. Shouty album closer ¡BREAKOUT!, meanwhile, kicks things up a gear once more for a feisty, punk-driven conclusion that’s a joy to behold.
Calm and collected when it needs to be but by no means lacking in heart and passion, this album is a fine collection of songs by an artist intent on forging her own path. It feels like there’s no stopping WILLOW’s rise.
For fans of: Paramore, Maggie Lindemann, Japandroids
Lately I Feel EVERYTHING is released on July 16 through MSFTSMusic / Roc Nation via Polydor.
