Over the years Janet Devlin has repeatedly impressed me with her unique brand of music. Whether it’s creating upbeat pieces of indie folk pop like Creatures of the Night, somber ballads like Whiskey Lullabies or music for the holidays like her Little Lights Christmas EP, she never fails to impress. Today she’s released her latest single Confessional off her upcoming sophomore album of the same name with the concept being her confessing to all the terrible things she’s done throughout her life. It’s an interesting concept and if this song is anything to go by it might be Janet’s best piece of work to date.

It instantly grabs your attention with these ominous gang vocals which soon get backed up by a Gaelic influence production dramatic drum beats and enigmatic violin melodies. However the driving force behind this track is the lyrics deliver perfectly by Devlin’s vocals that get across everything that this album could be because you feel the pain, you hear the anger and you understand the guilt as she goes into the horrible things she has done. This single sets the tone instantly for the whole project and all I can say is that this is an album you’re going to want to pre-order right now.
