Hannah Blackburn's Tiny Car Is A Slow Rolling Rock N Roll Triumph
Hannah Blackburn’s Tiny Car rambles itself to glorious heights over the course of its three and a half minutes. An exercise in restraint and masterful release, Blackburn, is bold and brilliant in bringing her vision to life.
There’s an unassuming warmth in Hannah Blackburn’s voice that seeps into every element of her songs. A relaxed cool that stands unique yet familiar as it finds purchase and place in its listener. It’s this familiarity blended with a strong sense of self that ensures that in a season of songwriters standing tall, Blackburn and band bring something truly special.
Tiny Car is no exception to this, bringing everything Blackburn offers to the table. Soft and intimate, fed up and fierce. Tiny Car rolls forward releasing elements as they are needed, gradually needling out a song flushed full of surprises and a deceptive depth.
It’s a perfectly weighted song that gives everything you ask of it before hitting a gear you didn’t expect. Tiny Car is a sublime rock n’ roll masterstroke from an artist finding their stride.
