Opening up very delicately with “Skin”, we can immediately get a feel for Morris’ soft yet husky vocals. The simple, gentle percussion coupled with the minimalist approach of the piano creates a very hushed, subdued feeling, allowing Morris’ voice to take center stage in what is a genuinely lovely track. “Under The Shadows”, the albums main single, has a more upbeat tempo with more of a beat to it but retains the almost cushioned structure of her writing style. It’s a mildly hypnotic track, very easy on the ears and a pleasure to listen to; an album highlight.
“Closer”, “Cold” and “Love Again” all follow suit with their catchy simplicity, all proving enjoyable listens, while the rest of the album is predominantly ballad filled. “Don’t Go” and the title track for example are beautifully layered love songs emphasizing the soulful tones Morris’ delivers so effortlessly. What makes Morris’ stand out then? It’s quite simple really…she’s all about the music. Having played piano since the age of 4, and having signed to ATLANTIC RECORDS because they promised to “take it slow” and in her own words, wouldn't blow any smoke up her arse, she’s been allowed to focus on writing quality songs, as oppose to penning cheap pop tunes and being sexualised like other female solo artists. This is just the beginning of what is hopefully a prolific career from the Blackpool-born musician. Fingers crossed she won’t let her guard down too much.
