Artist: Lizzy Farrall
Release: All I Said Was Never Heard
Label: Pure Noise Records
Release date: January 5th, 2018
Five days into 2018 I might already have my favorite newcomer. Lizzy Farrall is a singer-songwriter from Chester, England. About herself, she says: "I have an unhealthy obsession with drinking earl grey tea and writing sad songs." I have no idea about the first one, but, when it comes to writing sad songs, she's damn good at it.
'All I Said Was Never Heard' is her debut EP, but these five songs were more than enough to show how talented she is. From the acoustic stuff to full-band moments such as 'Better With,' Farrall offers her heart on a sleeve, giving away her deepest emotions. She said she uses her music as a diary, and it's easy to hear it.
Raw emotion is followed by a raw production, making this EP a real underground treat. Punk rock edge, emo feels, and a little bit of pop make 'All I Said Was Never Heard' a perfect record for cold winter days. Dark, sad, but also with a touch of optimism, these songs are ready to suck you to her micro-universe, and never let you go.
This may be her debut, and it may contain only five songs, but this is a state of intent. Lizzy Farrall is here to stay. She has everything - lyrics, emotions, voice. If her debut is this good, I can't wait to hear what's next.
