Janet Devlin is unlike any other. She has a unique voice, and mixed with the Folk guitar as well as piano, makes for an exceptional sound that is not comparable to any other musician. It makes for an interesting listen, and an enjoyable one at that, for an artist that should soon dominate North America. So kick back, relax, and enjoy some simply well-composed tunes with Running With Scissors.
The album has a hinting of being inspired by Alice in Wonderland, with its song titles, or the lyricism, but it is clear that it was an inspiration. “Creatures of the Night,” the second single, kicks off the album sounding like The Lumineers meets Ellie Goulding. Folk guitar riffs, and a usually unattainable beautiful high-pitched vocal range make the song a foot-stomping, dress-spinning tour de force that will have the child in anyone dancing.
