Her Skin – ‘I Started A Garden’
Hailing from Modena, musician Her Skin has released the spell-binding album ‘I Started A Garden’. It is a folk-pop release that you need to hear this Autumn.
‘Bones’ opens the release, and it instantly entices the listener in. The stunning guitar work and soulful vocal performance are sublime and hooked us from the get-go.
‘Confident’ takes the album in a fresh direction with an upbeat vibe, punchy production and memorable melodies. We love the relatable lyrics, which are juxtaposed with cheerful instrumentation.
In addition, ‘Sober’ is a standout song with intelligent chordal progressions and charismatic vocal performances. Also, ‘Changing’ has a brooding vibe and gorgeous harmonies. Finally, ‘It’s Hard to Breathe/I Started a Garden’ closes the release, and it will have you reaching for the repeat button.
Her Skin says about the release, “It took me three years to write and record these nine songs, and I am aware that I’m not the same person I was when I started working on this record, but that’s what makes it so special to me. It’s an album about the lessons I learned, the people I loved, the time it took me to heal.”
Her Skin cites her influences as coming from artists such as Sibylle Baier, Vashti Bunyan, Mac DeMarco, Beirut, Joni Mitchell, Jay Malinowski, The Kinks, the Head and the Heart. We can hear these influences coming through on ‘I Started A Garden’ but make no mistake; Her Skin is making music all of her own.
‘I Started A Garden’ is the debut album from Her Skin. It is an excellent release that showcases her superb musicianship and songwriting talents that sets her as an artist who is on the top of her game in 2022.
So make sure you add ‘I Started A Garden’ to your new music playlist this week. It is a release you do not want to miss.
