What: Acoustic Pop
Where: Halifax, NS
Halifax’s Heather Green plays under her own name and describes her music as acoustic pop, but the songs she’s recorded demonstrate a far richer sound than such a description would have you believe.
Green is much more than a girl-and-guitar combo, playing highly-textural music with dense electro nods. Her 2008 debut EP, One Last Year, preceded her just-released offering Your Last War. The more recent shows Green with a ton of confidence, filling tracks such as “Salvation” with a strong, wandering voice that sounds as though it may have been carried in off a sea breeze. Though originally from California, the now-Haligonian sounds right at home within the artistic community that supports many of Halifax’s artists such as Rich Aucoin. While the folkier elements of her songs might sound at home in Halifax, the electronic elements showcase her California roots. The two locales certainly make for an interesting mix and it’s nice to see that Green has brought the sound and feel of two opposite coasts together.
