| “ You were once born free. |
Feeling so much indignation over each and every obligation and
there ain’t any indication of when it’s gonna end.”
With each song on this 5 track EP weighing in at over the radio friendly three minute mark, Randi takes time to explore and build up a range of emotions withskill akin to that of Alexandre Dumas. The enticing and beckoning ‘Come Away With Me’ with its sprightly instrumental outro, ighlights better than any other track that Randi has adopted a more band intensive approach to music making than was evident on previous album ‘ Solar Bipolar’.
The maudlin blues nature of closing number ‘Locked-Down Fade’ will erect a reputation for Randi as a crafted, emotive, versatile and intelligent singer/songwriter who actually cares. Defying the trends of manyofferings that are music's equivalent to fast food,thisEP credits the listener with having an attention span and it is certainly worthy of a great deal of attention.
