Hey, guys! It’s been a minute, but we’re back with some great news: another good review of “Afterlife!”
Musically there is a lot to like about this band, but it was the enthralling vocals of Anne Autumn Erickson along with the thoughtful, introspective lyrics that drew me in.
Anne Autumn Erickson does have an operatic vocal style but it is not over-the-top. She knows exactly when to rein it in and be a little more subdued. Some singers are so enamored with the fact they have this immense vocal ability that sometimes they go a little overboard. Sometimes less is more, as Anne Erickson demonstrates. The opening song “Afterlife” is a perfect example of this. The vocals are breathtaking and filled with heartfelt passion. The song is also quite melodic and immediately enjoyable.
Big thanks to Jason Thompson of The Vacant for the stellar review of Upon Wings’ “Afterlife” EP! Check out a few of his kind words below, and read the full review here.
Lead singer, Anne Autumn Erickson, is the force behind it all, and has a beautiful personality to give the fans with it. A brilliant combination to bless all of us with, and it is heard with amazing results in this EP, “AFTERLIFE.”
As always, thanks for all of your support, guys!
