Keren Ann – Chelsea Burns (CD Review)

This beautiful single comes from Keren Ann’s last album, which I must investigate further if the other songs are like this. The soft and rich, if not actual country, guitars provide a gentle bed for the fragile and emotive vocals of Keren herself. Keren sings a lot like Hope Sandoval (Mazzy Star); in that she shares the exposed nature of Hope’s voice and uses vocal effects to deepen the feeling conveyed very effectively.

‘Chelsea Burns’ is taken from Keren Ann’s critically well received latest album ‘Nolita’ which, on the strength of this amazing single, I will be seeking out very soon.
