ELIZABETH - Contraband


ARTIST: Elizabeth

TITLE: Contraband

LABEL: self-released

RELEASE DATE: May 25, 2019

GENRE: Singer / Songwriter



RATING: 8/10


The songs on "Contraband" are without exception of an urgency that makes it almost scary. Especially when the instrumentation is sparse, which is not usually the case, as for example on "Black is the Color", the angelic voice and the expressive piano playing come into their own. The slightly brisker title "Harvest Time" and the somewhat calmer "Said I Wanna" are the highlights of "Contraband", where Elizabeth Everts manages to create atmospheres and moods. All of the titles are very melodic, haunting and simply beautiful. This is definitely not music for "rockers", rather something for dreamers. Although all the songs live off the melodies, apart from their delicacy and melancholic ease, the music is alien to any profanity. Even the most pleasing and catchiest melodies are bar none of the stereotypes, and although the tone of the EP is mostly introverted without large variation, it captures me every single second. And so does each song, as again and again there is something new to discover in the comforting warm music that envelops one, flatters the ear and swells stress-free from the boxes. Every single composition is a little gem. "Contraband" touches and touches one. A work of emotions, for the heart and soul, which reduces songs to the essence. A work that you should know.
