CHELLCY REITSMA BLENDS NEW AND OLD WITH ‘BLACK WATER’ EP

Her attention-demanding vocals play out in a modern world but we’re also taken back a bit with the way the harmonica notes weave in and out, blanketing the alternative rock track with a subtle folk vibe. It’s that mix of styles that really elevated this song. Not to be outdone though, the rest of the EP is a stellar production that definitely excites the listeners in a multitude of ways. From the portrait painted in “She-Man” to the sultry ways of “Vixen,” Black Water is never a dull moment. That includes the poetic anchor at the end with “No Regrets.”
