Fay Lamour’s debut EP shows massive potential but is let down by a lack of self-confidence.

There is a ton of originality in Fay Lamour’s debut EP ‘Forty Second Street’ which is let down by poor post-production work.

Listen to 'Forty Second Street' below!

Musically, there is nothing stopping ‘Forty Second Street’ from being a solid EP. The tracks flow with ease and the addition of the steel drums is a pleasant surprise, particularly in the chorus of ‘Room 853’ where they’re given license to drive the song forward both rhythmically and melodically.

‘In The Mood’ has a more classical arrangement and shows off Lamour’s jazz sensibilities but is perhaps the best example of the main drawback in the EP. Rather than giving her silky-smooth voice the impact, it deserves she puts it on the back seat, using it as a background instrument rather than a focal point and, in turn, taking so much meaning out of the music.

Fay Lamour’s debut EP proves that if she would have more confidence in her singing and songwriting abilities she could easily make a name for herself in the music industry.
