Album Review: Tasha Sits Close To The Piano – Jaws of Love

The first I heard of Kelcey Ayer as JAWS OF LOVE was through his single, bearing the same name..and I immediately fell in love with the stunning emotive debut… and then comes along the release of album ‘Tasha Sits Close To The Piano’ – I had to check it out ; I’d be a fool not to.

The debut single that stole my heart, kicks off the album with a heart wrenching piano dominating the five-minute piece with a soft electro-synth bass joining in at a later stage, giving the production that smooth eighties pop feel.

As you get use to the mesmerising keys in the introductory single, Ayer – also a songwriter, vocalist and pianist for band LocaL Natives – pulls the rug underneath the feet and switches direction. ‘Hawaiian Licence Plates’ and ‘Everything’ up the tempo in the set, with its melodic and atmospheric drive reverberating throughout.

The heartfelt plucks of the lone guitar makes way and takes centre stage in ‘Love Me Like I’m Gone’, where Ayer’s lilting vocals goes down a treat – definitely a highlight of the album. Coldplay-esque electronic soundscapes follows in ‘Before The Hurting Lands’, before concluding on soothing on note with another Coldplay-esque piece ‘Nightlight’, featuring the return of that infamous rhythmic piano chords, this time working in unison of the near soaring  violins.

‘Tasha Sits Close To The Piano’ is such a simple and pure collection which may not sound great on paper – but there are some real gem moments within the set – it’s really impossible to hate…head over to iTunes and have a listen for yourself.

Vinyl release of the album is on the 3rd November.
