There are many gems of Tasmania, and singer-songwriter Madelena
is certainly one of them. Her contagiously enchanting debut EP Scrapbook
is a little collection of songs filled with love, hope, reflection and honesty sure to make you feel some warm fuzzy feelings. The majority of the tracks were written as part of I Heart Songwriting Club
, a global online songwriting club that supports songwriters.
Madelena showcases her ability to create beautifully rich songs with sensory language that creates strong imagery for the listener. Vocal harmonies invite you to sing-along and the production supports the sentiment of each song delivering this well-rounded and well-realised collection of songs.
The title track is a bright, rollicking number that celebrates the memory and physical memorabilia of a relationship. ‘Back to Zero’ presents the digital experience of reliving a relationship through a Facebook account played out as a modern spin on an old fashioned country love song. The EP opens with the sunny single ‘Lightest Shade Of Blue’ and carries us through a relationship cycle ending at the beginning again with the closing track ‘Lost’ describing the experience of falling in love.
is a strong, joyous, and thoroughly uplifting EP.
