Moving from haunted demi-melodies and tenderly plucked guitar, imbued with tastefully echoing reverb and Tricca’s delicate voice, influenced by decades of classic Americana and folk but sounding like none of the above. Brimming with emotion, and thoroughly enchanting. Superb.
St. Peter does feel like the work of an artist who has found her voice in a most startling way. Her songwriting is of exquisite skill and she has surrounded herself with the perfect musicians to complement her expanding sensibilities.
Throughout the record, surface intimations of prettiness are shadowed by these ripples of drama—cinematic changes in tempo or tone. Tricca’s voice is that of a singer in transition, a traveller across time and space, genre and scene.
