The Art of Kirty

kirtyOrillia, ON singer and songwriter Kirty has released a very impressive self-titled album, a little melancholy, a little bright, it breezes in like a hazy shade of summer. Besides excellent writing (throughout the disc), her creamy vocals make this a delightful excursion into alternative folk territory. The varied arrangements are nicely done often coming together from sparse sittings to jam with playful spunk hugged by atmospheric glitter and then pulling back again. Kirty says of the album, “These were songs written in the summer, for the summer. It’s the kind of album I want people to be listening to when they’re riding their bike, or headed to the beach, or driving.” Summer may be over, but we’ll be listening to this album every season of the year. Below, we embed the audio for track “That’s Not Me”.  iTunes
