Title - Descend [EP]
Artist - Leslie Hunt
Contrary to the title, District 97 lead-singer and ex-American Idol finalist, Leslie Hunt continues her upward trajectory with Descend, her brand new solo seven-track EP.
Descend marks Part Two of a 2-EP set, and is the follow-up to Ascend, which was released in June.
Featuring another set of seven adeptly crafted songs, each one a testament to Leslie Huntís progressively assured songwriting ability.
Where Ascendís seven tracks dealt with matters relating to the heart and soul, the songs on Descend deal predominantly with freedom of the individual and their attempt to find a place within an increasingly complex and sometimes harsh society.
1. DONíT MAKE ME COME BACK THERE
2. AGAIN + AGAIN
3. QUIET MIND
4. BIG WHITE FLAG
5. THESE DAYS
6. SO MANY TIMES
7. COMPLEX HEART
Leslie Huntís eclectic range of influences move naturally among Descendís seven songs traversing an array of genres and opens on the soaringly effervescent ambiance of DONíT MAKE ME COME BACK THERE and the countrified pop bounce of AGAIN + AGAIN and then we get the beautiful balladry found within QUIET MIND.
Next up is the light, melodic pop ebb and flow of BIG WHITE FLAG and the acoustic guitar bed work of THESE DAYS, the EP rounding out on the gracious embrace of SO MANY TIMES, closing on the gentle mid-tempo gossamer of the dulcet COMPLEX HEART.
