This is the year the world woke up to the vocal talents of Melbourne’s soul queen Kylie Auldist, who follows the international success of This Girl with her fourth solo set, which sparkles and shines.
Written and produced with her Bamboos buddies Lance Ferguson and Graeme Pogson, Family Tree showcases a stack of ’80s synth sounds, reminiscent of The Pointer Sisters and Prince. Overall, Auldist comes across as a modern-day Renée Geyer – a genre-busting vocal powerhouse. She even successfully re-works Cold Chisel’s Saturday Night.The title of track one says it all: Sensational.
Family Tree is available August 5 via Family Tree Records
