Shona Foster: The Moon & You

UK singer-songwriter Shona Foster is a piano siren who has been likened to Fiona Apple. I personally think Shannon Wright may be a more appropriate comparison for music on Shona’s new album, The Moon & You. Songs like the opener “No. 34,” “Queens,” and “Dancing Leaves” are moody piano melodies with subtle instrumental and vocal flourishes. There are occasional hints at My Brightest Diamond‘s dramatic eccentricity, but there’s a visceral element lacking in the arrangements on The Moon & You to make the songs stand out as individuals. Still, I quite like the album and suspect it’ll grow on me more over time.
