ALBUM SELECT OF THE WEEK: CHARLOTTE ERIKSSON-THE GLASS CHILD
Our 'New Artist of 2011' and 'One To Watch For 2012' is Charlotte Eriksson. Charlotte Eriksson is 'The Glass Child' and she recently release her epic second EP 'This Is How Ghosts Are Made' at the fall of last year. Twenty twelve will see her tour and if there's any musical justice in this world become the bright star she's set to be. Her talent burns bright and is evident to see on her first, literally self-titled E.P. Beginning with a beautiful but 'Creepy Little Story' Charlotte's hallmark haunting lyrics and vocals made there debut to the world. The real, genuine talent and honest, heartfelt lyrics continue on 'Play Pretend'. 'I've Hidden So Well' reveals more before the sensational song 'I'll Never Tell' evokes pure emotion and beauty all in one as Charlotte lullabies her introduction, singing "It’s quiet now/Broken glass and pieces of me on the floor/I hear you now, please don’t be angry anymore/starring at that door". The depth of this cut continues as she laments love so vividly harmonising "I wear you on my skin/Open wounds form every fight, no one can win/You made me doubt my worthiness, believed your sin/Murder from within" As this EP closes perfectly with 'Stuck In My Mind' this singer remains so as well all anxiously await her L.P. which will play in record players for a long time to come. The same amount of time we can expect to be hearing from this girl from Sweden. TIM DAVID HARVEY.
