New Music Friday Albums: Album Of The Week- Esther Rose – “Safe to Run”
From the promo material:
Everything clicks on Safe to Run, the fourth album from singer, songwriter, and perpetual searcher Esther Rose. It’s the quiet culmination of years spent fully immersed in a developing artistry, and presents Rose’s always vividly detailed emotional scenes with new levels of clarity and control. As with previous work, her songwriting transfigures the chaos and uncertainty of a life in progress, but here she introduces a newfound pop element that attaches unshakably catchy hooks to even the darkest stretches of the journey.
