EP REVIEW: Mia Dyson – Tearing Up The Lawn

artworks-000129777406-amwvph-t500x500

ptw scorebw7.5Mia Dyson hit a fine songwriting streak on her last full length Idyllwild and she continues that here, especially the EP’s first single Tearing Up The Lawn. It’s a carefree, big and bold wash of rock guitar and an ineffable chorus hook. Elsewhere she finds great emotion and beauty in the more restrained corners of songs such as the slow burning Talk With Me and the melancholically chugging Right There. The soulful, piano-led Sad Part of Feeling Good channels Lucinda Willliams while I Want Honey takes a Ryan Adams countrified approach to round out what is a varied and yet another strong release from Dyson.
