Track 1 - My Someday
buy the music from CDBaby
Erica's voice is airy, haunting, heartbreaking, and creates a wonderful sense of continuity over the span of the album. Over the course of the 12 songs Blondfire succeed at taking the listener on a journey through several different genres, with each track sounding remarkably original and unmistakably their own.
Beneath their catchy melodies and quirky production there is an undeniable charming element to their sound. Some songs seem like period pieces or forgotten hits from a different era, while still seeming modern, fresh, and current.
It's evident from listening to My Someday that the Driscolls love music and have fun doing what they do. Each song was recorded in a different location, some as bizarre as a London hotel room. The album shows what bands can be capable of once they throw out the rule book and just make the music in their hearts. This is a must listen release.
