Birdy: Fire Within

19 Nov

Fire Within

After a year of female pop characterised by hyper-sexualization and blatant dumbing down, Birdy’s second studio album Fire Within will come as welcome relief to those who have lost the faith. Ms Van den Bogaerde is certainly no ‘Rude Girl’, ‘Teenage Dream’ or ‘Dumb Blonde’.

Her first predominantly self written album showcases an artist with confidence, maturity and grace; qualities that set her apart from the pack and make for a thoroughly refreshing listening experience. Combining a perfect balance of restraint and complexity with outstanding lyrics and a voice of spun gold, Birdy’s Fire Within is, without a doubt, one of the finest albums of the year.

Highlights include the very honest and raw Heart of Gold, the exultant and uplifting Light Me Up, the playful Maybe, and the breathtakingly beautiful Standing in the Way of the Light. Get it now, you wont regret it.
