Ebony Buckle – Wild Woman
Avid Vodka readers will remember Ebony Buckle. I’ve reviewed three of her tracks over the last year and change. There’s a reason for that: Buckle’s voice! It is at once beautiful, clear, and precise lyrically. While the storyline may not be perfectly clear, this leaves a space for the listener’s interpretation. The best creative minds have always written this way. They know their lyrical intended meaning, but they allow the listener space to experience their own vision. Enter Wild Woman, the single released back in July (seen/heard here), and another single off of the debut long-player (LP) Disco Lasers, due sometime this year.
Lyrically, Wild Woman is a nod to Buckle’s inner self; The one that keeps her on course. In her words:
“The one who has taught me to tend to my inner power, to keep me on the path that is truest to myself, to trust my own intuition and to take up space in the world.”
It is surprising to me, that a voice that is so powerful and beautiful, is wrapped up in a person who struggles with confidence. For Buckle, tapping the Wild Woman inside gives her the power to move forward musically.
It’s hard to think of Ebony Buckle as not having released an LP. Every single she has released has been a polished gem, the sort that usually announces an LP. Yet these singles have existed on their own up to now, teasers that can increase the excitement of the LP’s eventual release. With Wild Woman released, let’s hope that the LP is right around the corner!
