Anna Calvi “Anna Calvi” (2011)

September 3, 2011

Anna Calvi is not just a younger PJ Harvey. She’s got her own voice and style which she proves on her self-titled debut album. Sure, it’s dark and guitar-driven but you have to wait a while to actually hear the singer as the opening track is mostly instrumental. No More Words builds slowly and never reaches climax but is melodic and absorbing. Desire has great drums and Blackout, clearly the best track here, shows Anna’s full potential.
