Review: See Green "Violet" [EP]
Courtenay Green, an alternative pop artist who goes by See Green, has released her new 5 song EP entitled, "Violet". We covered the free mp3 release of the track, "Think Twice" not long ago here on BMF. "Think Twice" is an outstanding tune, brilliantly interjecting elements from 80s new wave into contemporary guitar-driven pop. The song, which reminds me of The Motels at their best, has become one of my favorite tracks of the summer.
The See Green "Violet" EP has more of the same, with the perky "Gold Mine" and "Get What I Want" being especially charming and fun to hear. The closing track, "Fade Away" is a pleasant departure as the sparse acoustic arrangement allows you to fully appreciate the beauty of Green's voice.
"Violet" follows her previous 2008 EP. A jack of all trades, Courtenay Green writes and arranges just about every part of the song, and co-produces her material. She is working hard on her debut See Green record and I for one am very excited to hear it.
