Being her first full length album I wonder if this mix of styles and sounds is a consequence of time. I would probably put it on the shelf somewhere between Of Monsters and Men and Lorde.
On her long-awaited debut album, the Gold Coast success shows off different sides to her sound and showcases the songwriting that’s made her such a relatable success.
Love Monster is a bit of a roller-coaster – in a good way. One minute you can imagine Amy Billings singing the songs accompanied by an acoustic guitar, then the next minute the drums and synths kick in. The sound never quite settles.
