Erin Costello, We Can Get Over

I’m loving Erin Costello. First off, her voice is simply transfixing, immediately familiar to Soul Sisters of Motown and akin to the throaty tone of Adele and Amy Winehouse. Like her contemporaries, We Can Get Over is adorned with classic soul infused with genuine passion; expressing the joys and pains of life. There is a deep respect for the genre and Costello sticks pretty close to the rules, but it never gets stale and every song is executed so well that you quickly get wrapped up in the retro atmosphere. There are so many great moments to choose from, but my favourites include the playful doo-wop “Oh Me Oh My”, the funky 70’s strut “Count To 10”, the slow-burn “Let It Go” and the gospel tinged “Down Down”. Overall, We Can Get Over, is both a sonically and emotionally pleasing album that seductively enriches sweet soul vibes for a new generation while paying respect to the past. (Independent)
