Kristy Chmura’s “Abandoned House” calls back to the strong female vocal style of Tori Amos and Sarah McLachlan. Chmura is able to pull double duty on this single as her vocals tell a story as well as contributing mightily to the overall harmony of the track. Abandoned House is fairly spartan in its instrumental arrangements, but uses each flash of guitar, drums, or strings in a fashion that highlights Kristy’s vox perfectly.
Slinky, deliberate, and contemplative, Abandoned House is one of our favorites. Kristy Chmura makes a cut here that is very traditionally-oriented while sounding current (if not cutting-edge).
