Scotlands Rianne Downey has released her second EP ‘Come What May’ the follow up to her successful debut EP ‘Fuel To The Flame’. This time life finds her looking back through her own record collection, citing new loves Flyte and Taylor Swift as inspirations, alongside and her all time No.1, Paolo Nutini.
The wonderful bright vocals on the catchy opener track ‘Home’ is quite frankly all you need in life. The infectious simple percussive feel is all that’s needed with a voice like Downey’s. The personal lyrics are something that sees this EP stand out. It’s fill of heart within those clever lyrics. Something that track ‘Hard’ openly wears. It lifts the tempo with some strings and piano backing up Downey’s guitar and voice. A superbly arranged track with a chorus that’s as good as any from a certain Miss Swift.
The attitude filled ‘Come What May’ punches through with its rock guitar riff and soaring vocals. It’s a terrific track with a driving soul and quick fire vocals that really show off Downey’s impressive lyrical phrasing. It’s the same on closing track ‘Alright’. The sweet brightness that dominates this EP is strongest on ‘Alright’. Upbeat and driving rhythms help carry the lyrical phrasing something Downey does very well.
Full of catchy tracks and a voice to fall in love with, there really is no limit to what this talented lady can achieve. Her second EP carries on from her first and surely leaves us begging for a full album.
