Alice BrightSky - Box of Me

Indie Folk-Pop. Just breathe that in for a second, try to visualize it, try to understand how both concepts would work. When you fail, you'll be ready for Alice BrightSky's Box of Me. The debut effort that transitions the often monotonous Pop hooks and classic influences with ease.

Those of you inclining more towards Pop will like her latest focus track Up Up and Away, but that one didn't quite capture my attention like Pry Me Away did. It's a little more Folk-y, with strings aiding the overall emotion of the track.

I like the change, I like how it feels smooth and innocent as it turns into a complete scenario. It builds slowly, tying together with the lyrics and becoming one cohesive object. I suppose the musical production could have a little more depth to it, and that's where the album comes into play.

Each track on its own can be fulfilling as it plays, but the album as a whole feels complete for longer periods. It's emotionally memorable and lyrically compelling. The only fault it might have is that you really need to be in a Pop mood to truly enjoy the entire effort.

If for nothing more, the album's worth the listen for the lyrical quality. The way Alice binds words and creates vivid 3 minute stories is a wonderful experience that's only topped by occasional instrumental backgrounds that perfectly fit the imagery. It's here, because of that chemistry, that that Folk and Pop can coexist so well.

Appreciation of the album can be shown multiple ways, including buying the independent effort. Alternatively her Facebook and Twitter are welcoming of new fans, so go give her a shout and show some love. I'm sure the growing support is appreciated.

  3. Yay, it worked the second time.

    Her voice is beautiful. So melodic. Kind of reminds me of Alanis.
