Artist: Early Girl
Title: ‘Forever We Change’
Overall Album Vibe: Early Girl started out as a solo act with vocalist Gina Longo but quickly turned into a duo act when producer-songwriter Michael-Louis de Terre decided to become part of the group.
You might know de Terre as the front-man and founder of Indie alt pop/rock band Rosemary’s Garden. While Longo is a classically trained vocalist, who was once signed to Death Row Records for a short stint.
‘Forever We Change,’ is the duo’s debut full length release. It offers up a mix of pop, rock and even some alt country tunes that are found on its 10 tracks. Longo’s vocals work well in the songs taking control of them while not overpowering their instrumentation.
Highlight tracks from the album include, “Drunk,” an harmonica and fiddle filled alt country sounding number that de Terre says was inspired by a real life story of a heartbroken woman that he met in a bar.
“Fade in the Night,” is the story of a loving relationship and all of the different phases it can go through over time.
“Stand Up,” is a nice up tempo pop/rock anthem about taking a stand for what you believe in and letting you voice be heard. The song was originally written for use in an animal rights film. Longo is involved with several non-profit organizations that work for animal rights.
The last song I want to talk about is the title track, “Forever We Change.” The up tempo rocker is about how things in life change over time. How even best of friends seem to sometimes fade away with the passage of time. The song offers up some nice guitar and drum work.
Standout Tracks: “Drunk”, “Fade in the Night”, “Stand Up”, “Forever We Change”,
