Nothing To Say 11. Everything Little Thing In a small-town South of Austin, Texas vocalist and songwriter Molly Burch is relaxing in her sunny country home. The 27-year-old is enjoying the calm before the storm that will kick start when her much anticipated sophomore album First Flower hits the public. The subtle music arrangements work really nicely. Not one bad song on here. If you like the first track you hear, you'll love the album. Familiarity without ever becoming repetitive All the songs are fantastic but I'm gonna go with the final song on the album as my fav track because the music and voice inparticular combine to turn it into a soaring piece of beautiful artwork.
Produced by Dailey Toliver & Molly Burch. I like all of you I like the things you say, the things you do Every day I wake up, watch you as you go You don't have to tell me, baby I know, I know. You (you) You are my man (my man) You (you) You are my man (my man) You are (you are) My man (my man) You are (you are) My man. Just like the first flower that blooms in spring To me you are, you are my everything I like the way you hold me Hold me, don't let go You don't have to tell me,.
First and foremost, on First Flower, Molly Burch sounds much less like Angel Olsen, perhaps the biggest issue plaguing her otherwise strong 2017 debut Please Be Mine. Burch’s striking alto, distinctively slurry and emotive, is put to excellent use here, and more than ever before, she sounds like nobody but herself. First Flower roots its musical influences a bit more plainly in pre-British invasion pop, a slightly obvious move that nonetheless. Other than that, No complaints, Love the chill vibe, Love the instruments, Love the Album Cover, Etc. The songs are very pretty and relaxing too. Without You standalone is a very amazing track, The amount of effort put in the instruments is crazy, Especially compared to the rest of the tracks.

Texas-based songwriter Molly Burch has announced her sophomore album, First Flower. The follow-up to her 2017 Please Be Mine debut is due out October 5th via Captured Tracks. Whereas her first album dealt with heartbreak, Burch addresses her own insecurities and anxieties on First Flower. The early seeds of the record began to blossom while she and her bandmate/boyfriend, Dailey Toliver, were holed up in their small town outside of Austin during the state’s terrible spat of hurricanes.
Although album covers rarely matter, First Flower hits the nail on the head. There’s an entire spectrum of emotion behind those eyes; it feels like she could be conveying pain and loneliness, or awe-induced admiration.
LP - Captured Tracks 280LP). What has changed between albums is that Burch opens up a little here, offering more personal reflection on a record dedicated, per the liner notes, to "anyone who has ever experienced anxiety or self-doubt. Despite those thematic implications, First Flower opens with the coquettish "Candy," which compliments an object of affection ("Why do I like how you look/You look like candy") while insisting that they stay away ("It's hard to stand now/Don't touch my hand now"). Emphatic, unprocessed guitar tones à la surf rock and country noir reinforce.
