Sarah and the Swinging Richards are wildly eclectic on new album
(Published: April 16, 2020)

The headlines Sarah and the Swinging Richards are going to most likely generate for their new album, Rollercoaster, will be how wildly eclectic it is. In these days of faceless, one-dimensional studio product, that is among the finest compliments a young act can receive.

As the title of this wonderful project might imply, the songs on this LP actually take several unexpected twists and turns, allowing the group to unleash their creativity, but also to produce music that sounds incredibly warm and easy to relate to. The instrumental parts are absolutely top notch, but what really seals the deal here is Sarah Reagen's fantastic voice and world-class guitar skills of Patrick Sullins. Her talent channels influences as diverse as jazz, blues, and Americana, and she is always keen on showcasing her versatility. Whether she is exploring more traditional tracks or going for a more modern vibe, she always hits the mark with her dynamics and powerful vocals. A great example? The single "Back Away" is undoubtedly one of the highlights on this record. The song features iconic instrumental backdrops, with Reagen's singing showcasing its full range. She can use her ability to switch from different moods and intensities in order to bring her tracks to life and set the bar higher.

There is something truly magical about this record because Rollercoaster doesn't stick to one thing, and one thing only. It explores so many different stylistic directions, and as a result, Sarah and the Swinging Richards have a golden opportunity to generate a colorful piece of music as opposed to wrapping up a release that feels monochromatic.

Like a Jackson Pollock canvas, this effort is often unpredictable in the best possible way. From the sophistication of jazz to the emotion of blues and the true earthy vibes of the best Americana, the band knows how to channel so many different backgrounds in a seamless way.

Reagen is the perfect person to front a group like this because her voice seems to be fitting all of these different creative formats in a natural way. It seems effortless at how she changes lanes, and this is exactly one of the things that make her performances on the record so special and one-of-a-kind. If you like memorable tunes with a classic vibe, this is highly recommended.
