“I remember it well, when you said goodbye, holding my hand so tightly,” purrs Tailor on first single “Wolf”. It’s a sensitive acoustic guitar ballad that implodes into a strum ’n’ wailing autopsy of lost love cut from the same cloth of fractured singer-songwriter femmes fatales like Cat Power. Intense? Sure. But it’s the instinctive way that Tailor bares her psychological bruises that really seduces the listener. Sometimes she simply channels Lucinda Williams' classic alt-country drawl on “Why Don’t You Love Me?” At other times she mainlines the feral snarl of a Grace Slick or Sannie Fox on folk-blues kiss of “Love Anthem”. Sure, she occasionally comes across as an aspertined Adele, as on piano power ballad “Shaped Like a Gun”. But when she shelves the temptation towards over-emoted soul for subtlety and innuendo, as on a mesmerising acoustic rendition of Connie Francis’ “Where the Boys Are”, she really opens up and bleeds.
