Herald Sun - Hit - - MUSIC -

Aus­tralian singer Clare Bowen hit big via US coun­try mu­sic drama Nashville. She’s sold out global tours play­ing songs from the TV show and now fi­nally re­leases her own record. It’s mod­ern coun­try, but de­fies pi­geon­hol­ing. Let It Rain is Dolly Par­ton gone blues, Tide Rolls In sounds like Mum­ford & Sons cov­er­ing Proud Mary and Li­jah and the Shadow is like Ra­dio­head trans­planted to Nashville. Best is Doors & Cor­ri­dors, which re­calls the haunt­ing beauty of Spring­steen’s I’m On Fire. /CAMERON ADAMS
