Carly Taich’s debut album, Reverie, is regarded by Blurt Magazine as “a start-to-finish, no-filler/all-killer gem—a veritable calling card to greatness if enough ears find it.” In a few short years, the North Carolina songwriter has won a slew of awards and performed in some of the area’s favorite festivals, from LEAF to Bonnaroo.
Carly’s clever lyrics are framed by golden musical arrangements, swooning violins and barbershop harmonies that take us back to some other era, or dimension. There is a cinematic mysticism to all she produces with one foot planted firmly in this reality. The paradox between honesty and fantasy, modern utilities and supernatural phenomena, leaves listeners wondering if Taich is inviting them into a dream, or attempting to wake them up.
Carly Taich’s latest 6-song story, It Tends To Glow, asks and possibly answers the eternal question, What is love? According to the opening track, in its purest sense, Love Is both “magical and frightening.” From the heart-wrenching loss bemoaned in Tomatoes to the patient romantic dance of The Nest, relationships are at the core of Taich’s newest 60’s folk-inspired collection. In the timely New Year’s Eve, she offers to help carry the emotional burden of a friend’s heartache. Realizing she cannot take away another’s pain, Carly laments, “If there’s one thing I can do, I can always sing your blues.” Like a 6-sided die, every song on Taich’s balanced EP explores a different side of what it means to offer grace to someone, including oneself.
Holding a magnifying glass to her own soul before turning it on others, Carly has a laissez-faire way of tackling the human experience with humor and grace as if to always be whispering to her audience, “You are not alone.” Her crystal clear voice rings like a bell in the night to all who will hear it, living her own mantra: Out with the tragic, in with the magic, something feels different now. Light in the darkness, calm in the chaos, give me a likeness to Thou…
And everyone’s invited to answer.
