I go over what I thought of Anna Burch's latest album, Quit The Curse from Polyvinyl Records.
Though the deceptively complex pop of Quit the Curse marks the debut of Anna Burch, it’s anything but the green first steps of a fledgling new artist. The Detroit singer/songwriter has been visible for the better part of her years-long career singing in Frontier Ruckus, or more recently co-fronting Failed Flowers, but somewhere along the way a vibrant collection of solo material slowly began taking form. To me this album marks the end of an era of uncertainty.
The indie-pop musician Anna Burch was born for the spotlight; it just took several attempts to get there. After singing in the folk-rock band Frontier Ruckus, co-fronting the indie-rock act Failed Flowers, and joining other Michigan projects in her spare time, the Detroit singer-songwriter makes her solo debut with Quit the Curse, a record of wry one-liners and moody indie pop. Every track on the record is marked by fuzzy guitar hooks and 1960s-flavored girl-group harmonies-a bold step forward from her folk background. Distinguished by her sure-footed stride, Quit the Curse sounds like an album by an artist who at last knows where she’s going.
Quit the Curse is Anna Burch's solo debut, but it's not like she is brand new or anything. She's been hanging around helping others with their music for a decade plus. Burch has been a background member of Frontier Ruckus and the lead in Failed Flowers and most recently helped with vocals on Fred Thomas' excellent Charger just last year. Thomas paid the favor back by sending Burch's demos to Polyvinyl, and they promptly signed her. She's stated in interviews that she started writing songs just a few years ago.
