Folk troubadour turned rocker Misty Miller appeared on TNS’ radar earlier this month with the release of 'Girlfriend'. Her new EP of the same name offers us another glimpse of what’s to come for the star in the making.
'You know what I mean' picks up where 'Girlfriend' left off as a unrelenting rock n roll track that channels the gritty garage rock sound of The Monks. Miller’s voice really come to the fore , with vocals that alternate between a soft croon and a powerful wail.
'Devil' allows Miller to slow things down and show how the softer side of her previous work has translated to her new sound. Simple, yet beautiful, the stripped down track radiates a dreamy feel that builds to an anthemic climax. The track provides a perfect intersection between the two styles of Miller and will doubtlessly please both old and new fans.
'Lonesome Cowboy' is a track and a wistful nod towards the Wild West, with the jangly guitars combining with Miller’s melancholic melodies in what is a fine example of moody blues.
Upon first hearing Misty Miller, TNS earmarked her for big things, and her EP has only served to reinforce our belief. She has shown that there is a wealth of substance to match her change in style, releasing a collection of songs that have both character and radio friendly sensibilities.
