Published May 16, 2013Anna Scouten has previously earned hundreds of thousands of views with her YouTube cover tunes, in addition to lending her vocals to Joshua Hyslop. Now, the Montreal-based singer-guitarist is showcasing some of her original material on her self-titled EP. It's due out today (May 16), and you can stream it in full right now.
The songs aren't too much of a departure from her cover performances in that they're soft, acoustic folk numbers carried by Scouten's high, clear vocal coos. The arrangements are simple and plaintive, with guitar strumming joined by touches of banjo, strings and percussion. Recording took place at Greenhouse Studios, with production handled by Tyler Johnson.
In addition to the introspective originals — which cover subjects like heartbreak and borderline personality disorder — the EP includes a balladic version of Feist's "Intuition." Stream the five-song collection below.
