REVIEW: MS MR – “Ash Tree Lane”
Whistling feedback keeps your brain searching for the beat, but that’s quenched pretty quickly with a steadily pounding kick drum. This almost feels like an over-produced track by The XX with it’s the sparing vocals or even an underproduced track by Florence + the Machine with it’s marching feel. While I appreciate the ideas here, I would enjoy this mixed down a bit. The horn swells are really rich but a little jarring, and the entrances of other elements seems a little unbalanced at times. Her vocals are nice though, and they could have glued everything together better. Despite that, this will still be pleasant to hear on your itunes shuffle so take a listen.
