Scarlett Taylor - Churches - Album Review
Scarlett Taylor has released Churches her second album, though it is freely available through Soundcloud, which really ought to be released on iTunes as it is a good piece of artistic material.
What Scarlett Taylor does is mix her music and the image perfectly, like a nice pair of tailored warm gloves.
The first part of the album is focussed on the 'person' that doesn't hold back with Fucked-up, then if you're feeling strange then Crazy will hit a nerve. Then the last song that goes together is Imprisoned, which has had a remixed makeover.
You've then got Vacancy that sounds like you're in the middle of nowhere and wish it would be a place of sanctuary? The next song Off puts you in a guessing frame of mind as to whether Vacancy was a scary place, or it could-be where the 'person' hung themselves?
Relating to the closest concept of the depth of pain is best conveyed in Confessional and after this song the album changes direction into 'other people' and different situations.
You would think Ignite would be a blistering high level track, it is actually the softest song on the album.
The closest we are going to get on Churches of 'I'm so wrapped-up into you,' are Velvet and the next song Without You.
Christmas Eve and Shampoo probably mean something different, but with the sadness displayed in the lyrics and the sound of music, it would be thankful if anyone survived until the festive period! Still while you're celebrating you can give it some sweet smell of cleanliness of your sins.
Getting back to more of the theme of CHurches the last song Cutting can be quite shocking if you think you see the redness of blood flash before your eyes.
Churches can be fairly morbid but it enjoyable to listen to and there is plenty of people who will not only get this album, but can relate the themes within the lyrics.
Churches is available at Soundcloud.
