mp3: "Cut Yr Teeth" - Kississippi
If you've read this blog for any length of time, then you likely know that Zoe Reynolds aka Kississippi has served as an artist of constant inspiration. There's an immediate connection made each and every time you listen to her material, whether on her very first recordings or this newly released single from an upcoming full length debut. Reynolds tackles the subjects we so often relegate to secrets or journals, never to be shared with anyone.
"Cut Yr Teeth" once again sees the band opening up their heart, and pouring it out in a emotive single of finding your voice and confidence. The glittering strings, the slow pull away of instrumentals, a pattering pulse of percussion and Reynolds' defiant, but soft vocals create the perfect storm for one to fall into. "You've never felt sorry at all," Reynolds proclaims again and again, as if she's hoping for it to stick and land on the one who broke her. Bolder and bigger than ever, Kississippi makes a grand return and we're here to welcome them with wide, open arms.
