NYC Songstress, Kate Fenner, tunes into her intuition and dials down to the core of her inner world throughout her latest album release, ‘Middle Voice’. Kate has recently released the mesmerizing new music video for her latest single, “The Yield”, on Vimeo. As music is subjective, we took a stroll through the full album to create our own perspective on a introspectively stirring release.
Kicking off with the first track, “Two Minds”, Kate remains captivatingly human as she lyrically checks in with her current mental and emotional state while diving deep into the multiple versions of herself that she encounters on a daily basis. The second track, “This Divorce”, begins by mimicking the slow instrumental style of Regina Spektor as Kate lyrically treks through the varying meanderings of a mind that is currently within an emotionally charged period of time. “Beatrice” is the third track that highlights Kate’s bold vocal style as she lyrically faces her insecurities head on and subconsciously shares years of self-awareness that she has cultivated through both the fire and the pull of desire. The fourth track, “The Yield”, propels forward as Kate lyrically shares the challenges that she has faced while coming face to face with the individual has has stirred up a roar within her heart.
“A Marriage” is the fifth track that lyrically travels through the quiet times that are shared amongst an interpersonal connection that carry mystical attributes and tend to be overlooked due to growing emotional disconnection. The seventh track, “You’re a Big Girl Now”, begins with a soft piano over a gentle acoustic guitar which leads into a lyrical conversation that Kate has with the human of her desire from afar as she works toward establishing healthy boundaries and setting herself free. The eighth track, “Fatal Fire”, is an album highlight as Kate lyrically dives head first into her current inclination to steer clear from being blinded by outsides sources and belief systems. “Hunter” is the ninth track that picks up the pace with a soft intensity as Kate balances her inner anger with optimism as she gradually comes to accept the reality of the separation that she is facing. Closing out with “That is All”, Kate sheds her skin and tears down her walls as she aches to reconnect with another, yet knows in the back of her mind that what she is ultimately yearning for is closure.
‘The Middle’ is full of metaphorically rich and elaborate songwriting that keeps an introspective mind on the edge of their feet.
