Austin’s own Christina Cavazos is a young soprano-wielding talent well beyond her seventeen years of age. The maturity of her songwriting matches that of her voice, possessing the wisdom and hints of life-learned melancholy usually found in someone well into womanhood. Working with producer Louie Lino (Nada Surf, Ume, Matt Pond PA), her second EP Cold is a concentrated showcase of a decade’s-worth of experiences and talent gained throughout her real-life Künstlerroman.
The soft echo floating off each line in “Over Me” gives the song the effect of an airy tunnel, surrounding you in the song from beginning to end while blocking out all possible interference. Well-placed chords cause a swell of brightness flowing from the core outward. The sound isn’t dense, but encompassing, bearing everything and burying nothing. It’s that soft echo wafting off of each instrument, including her voice, that binds this dream-folk recipe together, but even after filling-up, she leaves you hungry for more.
