Californian Molly Burch’s third LP of original material takes its listeners back to a more innocent time, be it the 80’s instrumentation and production of Games, or the 90’s laid back groovy indie pop of Honeymoon Phase which recalls The Cardigans.

Opener Control sets the tone with Burch’s soothing breathy vocal washing away the sins, whilst Kate Bush comparisons would not be far off, especially on the title track. The timeless highlight Heart of Gold, however, is indicative of an artist that deserves high praise for her own originality and she’s not afraid to mix things up; embracing electronic vibes on Emotion and going all country y’all on New Beginning. All in all, a delightful treat for those balmy summer evenings.
