Lizzy Farrall surprised fans with the release of her latest EP Barbados last week. Having teased earlier in the year with the release of the title track as a single, the complete offering is now available. While it is quite the difference from her last EP All I Said Was Never Told, Farrall is still completely captivating and engaging.
With a strong Pop feel throughout and the blend of synths backing up that sound, it becomes a very upbeat EP. To accompany the release of the EP, single “Games” was also released on the Slam Dunk social media. This track is the perfect introduction to what to expect from the rest of the EP. While the lyrics have quite a dark tone the actual sound of the track is quite upbeat with whistles and that synth edge. However, it’s “Balloon” which lifts even higher with its very 80s pop feel. Throughout there are plenty of catchy choruses and feel-good sounds while the lyrics express deeper feelings. On the outset, these are just great pop songs but they need a deeper listed to catch what Farrall is trying to express.
Farrall has brought her A-game when it comes to Barbados. With 5 tracks of catchy pop vibes laced with deep lyrics, what’s not to love! While fans may have expected something a little darker as with her first EP, they will certainly find she has stuck to her style in the lyrics just created a more upbeat sound to go with it.
Touring over the summer with Lights and Aaron West & the Roaring Twenties, there are plenty of places to catch Farrall live, including Slam Dunk who helped premiere her latest single.
