You know when you hit play on a track and you get the instant ‘Oh my God’ reaction? Yeah, well, that happened when I checked out KLC’s latest track Good God which is ironic I suppose. But given my affinity for Courtney Love and Courtney Barnett I can be forgiven for being a little bowled over to hear KLC splice their sound and add in a little Country Blues vibe around it. It’s pretty impossible not to fall in love with the up and coming artists dulcet aural prowess. With vocals so raw, lyrics so empoweringly resounding and a beat as textured it’s hard to see why KLC isn’t already a household name. I may have been able to draw some comparisons to KLC’s sound, yet her prodigally conceptual style is one that I would never tire of. Thankfully alongside her single Good God KLC released an 8-track album ONLY YIN, each track is as ethereally stunning as the last.
I really can’t recommend fans of Riot Grrrl, Folk, Blues Rock and Country alike give KLC’s latest track Good God a listen. Head on over to SoundCloud to check it out for yourselves.
