The Broken Speaker 7″ single review

“Kenney, 21, was first on Plaskett’s radar as a 17-year-old when she was recording at a small studio at Shambhala school in Halifax. It may be shocking to learn she wrote “Eden” when she was 16. The song is simple, but remains interesting as a story full of dreams and promise is told with lots of heart. The second track “The Great Escape” sounds more mature, the boredom of life and the need for an escape sinking in. Kenney’s voice carries more weight and confidence on the track. Halfway through the song, percussion and electric guitars unexpectedly drop in, adding a dose of urgency that contrasts the dreamy sound of the A-side.”
