Nova Scotia born, Toronto based singer-songwriter Molly Thomason is releasing her new album, “Columbus Field” on February 4, 2014. At 19 years old, this is her third record released in four years.
On February 4th in celebration of the release of “Columbus Field”, Thomason will perform at the Drake Underground in Toronto.
The album starts strong with “One For The Books”, which has a folksy feel, but also very pop sounding. I can picture this song before performed live, with lots of energy, and fun. The lyrics are catchy and fun to sing along with. In my opinion, this is the perfect choice for the first song on an album.
My favourite from the album is the third song, “Audrey Mae”. Molly has a very unique sound that has been compared to fellow Canadian artists, Tegan and Sara. This particular song has a more rock sound with a touch of pop, it is very upbeat and fun sounding. It’s no surprise that she has received multiple nominations for both the Music Nova Scotia and East Coast Music Awards. At the age of 19, she has a very mature sound and what seems is a natural skill at writing and performing!
The first single from the album is “Buttons”, which is the ninth song on the album, and again gives you a bit different side of Molly, a bit less folksy, but still has that vibe to it. As with the rest of the songs, you can see what an amazing songwriter she is, and you can also hear that she has a lot of fun with her music. I can imagine that a live show would be highly entertaining.
The whole album is very enjoyable and I would recommend you give it a listen, especially if you are in the mood for something fun. Molly clearly knows how to get people’s attention and create music that people want to hear.
