Erin McKeown – We Become Like Birds Album Review

by Emma

Multi-talented and critically acclaimed artist Erin McKeown released her third album earlier this year. We Will Become Like Birds is a serene recording with a simple elegance that compliments McKeown’s silky vocals perfectly.

The tracks on this album are mature, sincere and in part quite personal. The accompaniment of soft percussion, sleek gentle guitar and subtle keyboard makes this an easy going and relaxing album. One to take on holiday and daze away to whilst sunbathing. There is a quirky and delightful feel to this album to make you smile, sit back and take notice. I wouldn’t even try to suggest a genre for We Will Become Like Birds, it’s universal. My favourite tracks on the album are the cheery To The Stars and the clicky and upbeat We Are More.
