Madeline Kenney: Night Night at the First Landing

September 5, 2017

 

Kenney’s debut album is whimsical and dreamy both in her voice quality and the kind of indie-alternative beats she uses to express such. The calm, ethereal “Always” is a perfect song for almost every setting- long road trips on a sunny afternoon, hanging out with friends late at night, trying to chill out before bed- and the soothing, light beats compliment Kenney’s almost idiosyncratic and equally light voice. The song has no rough edges; her song “Rita” is in a similar fashion, however this one is a bit more rocker-esque than its album counterparts with a more alt-rock chorus structure that lays a bit heavier on the guitar. “Delicate” follows with the more rocker flare, with “Signals” and “Waitless” following the lucid, gentle and light style that she flawlessly switches between on the album. Her entire first album is a personal and uniquely stylistic, a few good hits that I imagine will only catch on from here!
