Hold Yourself Together; Everybody’s Talking About Asha Jefferies
“Everybody Talks” from the “Hold Yourself Together” EP
Sure, everybody talks, but not everyone says something!
Fortunately, there are some songwriters around with a lot to say, and do it convincingly, with a voice of their own, and music to go with it. This new EP from Indie singer-songwriter Asha Jefferies, from Brisbane, Australia is there to prove it.
All the songs on this EP are great but I particularly like this “Everybody Talks”. Such a clever song in its construction, alternating between intimate verses, its ternary groove, and the explosive strong hook that will bring a huge smile on your face. And the build-up ending grows to an epic proportion, before subsiding into the lovely final hook reprise. Can it get better than that? “Honestly I wouldn’t know”
Asha seems particularly at ease with laid-back grooves that goes so well with her heartfelt lyrics, and her voice has power and fragility at the same time, which is a great combination. Whether you like folk, folk-rock, indie pop, or whatever lies in between, give this one a listen, you won’t regret it!
