Singer-songwriter Isla Craig shows just how original and eclectic of an artist she truly is on her latest LP, Echo’s Reach.
Available through Idée Fixe Records, this album finds the Toronto-based musician decorating her achingly human ballads with refreshing sea breeze-like harmony vocals and a bank of complimentary instruments, such as smoky saxophone, piano and guitar.
Songs like “Moon” feature Craig singing with a surreal echo, while electric guitars creep with corrugated groans under a cloud of skronking sax. These same ingredients also emphasize the album’s melancholic tone, which is especially true with tunes like “Spider and Owl,” which has the atmosphere of a dark rainy evening by the sea.
If you like your singer-songwriter records with a deeper atmosphere and a dreamlike ambience that will cling to you for days, then you need to hear Echo’s Reach. Click here to order your copy on vinyl or digital today.
