Quite often I hear music coming in that has similar sounds and production, yet the strength of the song and vocals may be what takes it over the line. It’s when I receive music from artists who are not afraid to experiment with all of the above, my ears prick up with excitement.
Sure, perhaps nothing is completely original, but after hearing experimental singer-songwriter, Livietta Eponymous debut EP, she clearly isn’t concerned about perfection; but perhaps that’s what makes her music resonates deep within us; because in reality, we are all not perfect.
Liviettas vocals are deep and relaxed as they resonate beautifully in her lower register focusing on the narrative of each song allowing the lyrics to gleam as she prises the story of each track to become noticed and heard. Each and every track on Eponymous has its own personality and character, from the first track, ‘Amateur’ with the distorted sounds and vocal throughout, while the second track, ‘Ode ao Tempo’, sung in Portuguese accompanied by horns and trumpets, piano and strings taking the stage, incorporated with some interesting sound effects.
The third track, ‘Paper and Scissors’ enters with a simple and flowing peaceful piano line followed by Liviettas gorgeous vocals subtly showing what she is capable of as the track ignites from piano and cello into some very interesting beats imploding into another level.
There are 5 tracks on the Eponymous EP with space, simplicity and grace all within darkness and sadness, creating a beautiful EP.
If you’re a fan of the likes of Nick Cave, Radiohead and Bjork, then you will love Eponymous.
It’s hard to choose a personal favourite, but I would have to say ‘Paper and Scissors’ is right up there.
A must listen if you want to expand your horizons.
