The first time I saw Lauren Burton, she was onstage with punk outfit A Giant Dog, totally losing her shit and screaming along with Sabrina Ellis. The debut of her new project Wicker displays a more restrained side of the aspiring songstress. The bouncing three-four time of “Blue and Green” draws on 60s dance tunes and contemporary jazz pop. Burton has an excellent voice, rich and full of warmth. “Blue and Green” defies the safe, established sensibilities of hushed, whispery indie folk girls with guitars and in that regard serves as a welcome surprise. The song was recorded by Matt Simon and produced by Phil Ajjarapu. Wicker makes its live debut on June 17th at Cheer Up Charlies. Stream “Blue and Green” below.
