Lily Lambert – So Far
Spunky and packed with an up front pop sensibility, Lily Lambert’s sophomore album So Far is a breezy package of folk tinged tunes to bring some sunshine in to your day.
‘Pop Culture (Who Cares)’ starts the proceedings with a sway and a swagger, Lambert’s voice purring along and working in perfect tandem with the crunchy guitars.
her songs are a breath of fresh air, with their relaxed feel paired with a focus on care and attention to detail.
The music is filled with a really summery vibe, particularly on ‘Lead Me To You’, which has shades of U2’s ‘Hold Me, Thrill Me, Kiss Me, Kill Me’ both in the guitar work and the vocal “ooh-ooh-oohs” that are underpinned with a tight bass line. ‘Miss You’ is altogether more delicate, giving Lambert’s voice the chance to step out into the spotlight and truly shine, with the slightest hints of Kate Rusby in the midst of her own unique tones. Keeping listeners on their toes, ‘Karma’ employs a more upbeat rhythm that creates a kind of country, square dance vibe, while ‘Birds Of A Feather’ draws back to that swaying, lighter raising style. Lush and rich, Lily Lambert’s voice is like balm, and her songs are a breath of fresh air, with their relaxed feel paired with a focus on care and attention to detail.
