Alternatif et Indé - Released October 5, 2018 | Captured Tracks

Only a year after Please Be Mine, an impeccable, almost vintage first album, Molly Burch hasn’t wasted any time and once again shows off her vocal range from another time… The voices of Patsy Cline, Billie Holiday and Nina Simone surrounded her in the home where she grew up in Los Angeles, before studying vocal jazz in North Carolina. There, in Asheville, Burch met guitarist Dailey Toliver, the perfect accomplice and a way to test her amazing voice on her own songs and gain some confidence. In order to take things to the next level and reach a larger audience she decided to move to Austin in 2013. It’s in the Texan city that Please Be Mine was born, placing Burch in the same league as Jenny Lewis and Natalie Prass. She once again uses the timeless, sepia-coloured style of some legendary voices from the past with the same aura and charisma in First Flower. Still with Toliver on the guitar, this album is both contemporary and filled with last-century rock music. On Candy, the opening track, she uses a catchy swing before switching to introspection and deception on Next to Me and Dangerous Place, then she aims for the perfect love song on the title track First Flower. A well rounded album by an artist we are starting to love. © Marc Zisman/Qobuz

Released the week of Valentine's Day 2017, Please Be Mine is a collection of reverb-washed love songs by Molly Burch. The indie pop singer brings along a childhood of watching classic movie musicals, a degree in jazz vocal performance, and an affection for the vocal era, girl groups, and Brill Building pop to her debut. The retro sounds befit the smoky, sultry voice of a vocalist who counts Patsy Cline among her chief influences. Burch and her band, which includes Dailey Toliver (Adam Torres) on lead guitar, recorded the album live at Dan Duszynski's studio in a single day, save for a few overdubs. In the process, they weaved rhythms of bygone nightclubs and saddle-shoe proms into echoes of dream pop and, on occasion, '80s sophisti-pop for a composite consistent with the contemporary indie scenes of Brooklyn, London, or in Burch's case, Austin, Texas. Speaking of Texas, subtle guitar twang graces "Wrong for You" as Burch stammers in rhythm through regrets of falling for a Lothario. Later, with a title that may evoke Patsy Cline for some, "Torn to Pieces" has an atypical melody that softly yowls and moans over warm guitar tones and hints of classic Phil Spector. ("Baby, baby, I miss your loving/Why did, why did I ever think of another?") The slow dance "Fool" is an album highlight that brings with it Angel Olsen-like intensity and Britta Phillips' soft-focus sensuality. On the whole a solid set of songs, the album's influences play out consistently across a wistfully romantic atmosphere that should appeal to both lovers and the lonelyhearted. ~ Marcy Donelson
