Album Review: Sound of the Morning by Katy J Pearson

Exceptionally Good, Based on 3 Critics

musicOMH.com - 90
Based on rating 4.5

An album that never loses its capability to surprise, from the very first listen, you know you’ll be coming back to it again and again When Bristol’s Katy J Pearson first appeared in 2020 with her debut album Return, she seemed to be pigeonholed as part of a new wave of country singers. Listening to it now, it’s nowhere near a Nashville sound, and two years later, her follow up, Sound Of The Morning, is defined by one thing: a complete inability to be pigeonholed. Like all the best albums, Sound Of The Morning is a tough one to categorise.

Under The Radar - 80
Based on rating 8/10

On Katy J Pearson's whimsically titled 2020-released debut album, Return, we found the daydreaming company of a soft and sunlit singer, her warm, fluttering vibrato defining its landscape. With a tender tendency toward the tuneful, Pearson offered a warm embrace of pastoral, country-marinated folk, pricked occasionally and sweetly by exuberant, exalted alt-pop. With Sound of the Morning Pearson has conjured and fine-tuned a far more confident, almost irresistible song set.

Record Collector
Opinion: Excellent

There is a keep calm and carry on spirit to Katy J Pearson's impressively melodious second album. Much of the record sees Pearson attempting to navigate a newly uncertain world - variously the bonfire of recent world events, new relationships, and her changing status as a rising star - but, like its equally bright and breezy predecessor Return, Sound Of The Morning displays an irrepressible knack for songwriting. There's a nimbleness, too, as she sets her idiosyncratic voice to different settings: there's the Anais Mitchell-esque folk of the title track; the mid-80s' Kate Bush electronics of Howl; the electro-pop of Confession and Game of Cards.
