Anna Burch – Quit The Curse [Polyvinyl]

A collection of sugary, 90s-influenced indie rock. The nine songs that comprise Quit The Curse come on sugary and upbeat, but their darker lyrical themes and serpentine song structures are tucked neatly into what seem at first just like uncommonly catchy tunes. Burch’s crystal clear vocal harmonies and gracefully crafted songs feel so warm and friendly that it’s easy to miss the lyrics about destructive relationships, daddy issues and substance abuse that cling like spiderwebs to the hooky melodies. Though the deceptively complex pop of Quit The Curse marks the debut of Anna Burch, it’s anything but the green first steps of a fledgling new artist.

“On her solo debut, the Detroit singer-songwriter cuts with her folk-rock past and turns to 1960s-indebted indie pop and 1990s-schooled alt-rock hooks.” – Pitchfork
