Beautiful Tunes From Singer/Songwriter
Seven songs make up Cat Dail’s Fight For Love. It’s an album I fell in love with immediately, after only listening to the first track, “Can’t Buy Love.” Dail released this album with Lucky Magnet Records in late April. Lucky for you, it’s available for only $7 on Bandcamp, and it is well worth every penny.
“It’s an album I fell in love with immediately.”
When it comes to describing Dail’s music and what you’ll hear on this EP, the talented songstress’ bio says it’s a little bit of everything. You’ll hear some folk, some funk, some rock, some blues, and even some soul. These songs, in fact, will touch your soul.
Dail has gotten accolades for her talent, by taking home prizes from Billboard Magazine and more. She tours internationally. She’s a talented multi-instrumentalist that writes the songs she sings. Lucky Magnet is her recording label, and through it, she’s released six albums.
Now, onto this album.
“Can’t Buy Love” opens the album with a smoky, bluesy song that sounds like something you’d hear at a blues club or in a dark and mysterious nightclub. I love everything about this song. Dail’s vocals are so rich and magnificent. I tapped my foot through this entire song, and it sent chills up my spine (like the lyrics say).
“Player” has a jazzy beat to it. In fact, it made me think of a disco song with its upbeat intro. Dail’s vocals are less smoky and mysterious on this track, but she expresses her talent at fast singing. I’d trip over every word if I even tried to talk as fast as she sings a few of the lyrics in this song. This song is about players, and dealing with players. Love the player, hate the game.
“Catch Fire” is another track that has a bit of blues to it. “How come you don’t catch fire?” Nope, this song isn’t about liars. It’s about being hot.
“Hot like my heart’s desire
Like a gospel choir
Hot like the livest wire
How come you don’t catch”
“Wonder Love” made me think of stoner rock songs from bands like Fu Manchu and Nebula with its intro. The song has kind of a spacy sound. It’s something in the instrumentation. This song sings about Superman, because that makes sense with the title, right. But seriously, this is my favorite song on the album lyrically.
“Me and the man of steel could spend hours
Sitting around comparing our powers
Flying around through meteor showers
Then we go do some good
(Some bad, some good)”
“Flow Zone” starts with some computer-esque sounding noises and then leads into some music that sounds almost like some vintage 80s Madonna or Samantha Fox. I really like the upbeat sound of this track, and the addition of horns makes it super cool. This track almost has a disco sound too.
“She Can Fly” is a mellow song on which Dail shows her musical range with some higher vocals that sound great. While I like the range of this song, it’s probably my least favorite on this EP. That’s just because I’ve had enough of empowering songs already. I want to hear something new. This is a beautifully written empowerment song for women if you’re still into that sort of thing.
The final track, “Molly & Matchbox,” starts out with some country guitar licks. This song sounds so much different musically than the rest of the EP, and I dig that. I like that this album is so eclectic and no two songs are the same.
If you’ve been looking for some strong female vocals in some unique music that doesn’t sound like everything else out there right now, Cat Dail has some tunes you should check out.
“These songs, in fact, will touch your soul.”
