By Rachael Kichenside
After performing live sessions for the likes of XFM and the BBC and winning the hearts of the local press in her Manchester hometown, Rachael Kichenside seems intent on becoming a household name with her brand of polished folk-pop.
Featuring a picked guitar arrangement, glockenspiel and Rachael's sensual pop vocal, the beautiful opener "Something To Say" is undoubtedly the strongest song this EP has to offer. Rather disappointingly, the remaining three songs rest too much on the laurels of the typical singer-songwriter, ultimately, offering little to get excited about.
Rachael Kichenside seems to be one of those artists that has the ability to leave the listener sitting well and truly on the fence... on one hand it's quite easy to get caught up in the warmth of the recognisable melodies and accomplished sweet singing voice, but on the other hand, you're left to realise that there is nothing really unique about her music either. Decide for yourselves...
