Mary Jennings has a cool sound on her new EP, a blend of rock and electronica with a nice line in Sarah McLachlan-tinged vocals and Imogen Heap-like beats.
"Doorway" is catchy and poppy, Jennings' vocals strong and sweet all at once. "Hero" is slow and sensitive, tailor made for some romantic moment to soundtrack in a film. Jennings vocals are as perfect as ever. The EP's closing cover of "Umbrella" by Rhianna and though others have covered it, this works for Jennings too. Her vulnerable vocal seals the deal. It's a lovely EP all told.
