The country is clear in her voice, but the lyrics conjure fairy tales in a sonic context that sounds more Kate Bush than Florida-Georgia Line. It even, at its best moments, recalls Emmylou Harris’ groundbreaking “Wrecking Ball” album.
If the countrified tinges of Violet Delancey’s 2016 debut album were hits, the music of her forthcoming album, Columbia Road, feels more like a revelation.

When the Clock Strikes Midnight is a blend of fresh and modern with American roots music sprinkled in.
In [Delancey’s] case, talent matches ambition, to judge by her accomplished debut.
