Amanda Shires - To the Sunset

Regular price $25.00 $0.00

Amanda Shires "To the Sunset" pressed on vinyl. In the decade-plus that Shires has been making solo albums, she's expressed self-consciousness about the shivers and tremors in her singing voice, tried to smooth them out of her delivery and ultimately embraced its untameness. When her distinctive vibrato appears on To the Sunset, as a subtle emotive tool or punctuation in her storytelling, it feels like an electrical charge shuddering through the live wire of her voice. As if to match it, she experimented for the first time with filtering the sound of her fiddle through effects pedals, which lends her playing a fierce luminescence. Shires told her producer Dave Cobb, who also served as bassist in the album's indie rock-leaning band, "My violin needs to sound like it's in an aquarium, but more bright."
