Review: Marina Allen – Swinging Doors

Allen is gearing up to release her third album ‘Eight Pointed Star’. The Americana artist comes back with a single that is a celebration of entering a new phase of life. Where the laidback acoustic guitar falls back and Allen’s soft vocals are allowed to take the spotlight, her lyricism shines. In true Americana style, Allen’s high-pitched voice is backed by subdued drums and a laid back bassline. This track is to be enjoyed, at your own pace. Gentleness can often be overlooked when it comes to music, but the less-is-more approach of Allen on this single proves that you don’t need heavy guitar lines or pounding drums to make a song that’s truly sweet, heartfelt and tackles that period of ‘moving through stuff’ with grace and insight.
