Gabby Young & Other Animals
Bear With Me
Gabby Young has just released a sensational debut EP with her band. She darts from one style to the next with restless abandon.
Opener "Snakebite" is a mad big band strut as played by a punk band. Her roaring vocals help to cement that impression. "Tiger" is softer, a ballad that would melt any heart. Young's vocal is utterly gorgeous and a brass section adds flavor later on. "Down" ends the EP on a great note; Young and her band play a soft, eerie song that's strong from start to finish. She's one of the most original acts I've heard in a long while and her future looks bright.
