Bonus MP3: Jessie Frye - "Prepared"

Back in 2009, when Denton piano-pop songstress Jessie Frye released her debut The Delve EP, our own Darryl Smyers wrote that "if Frye ever chooses to venture further from the safety net of her undeniable talent, she might prove to be dangerous in alarming ways."

Now, with the release of the singer-songwriter's upcoming five-song EP, Fireworks Child, it appear as if his words have been taken to heart.

The disc, which will get its official release on April 26, features a markedly more electrified sound than Frye's debut.

Take, for instance, the track "Prepared," which Frye has been kind enough to pass along to DC9 readers as a free download. The slightly edgier production values and subtly distorted vocals that appear as the song progresses can (deservedly or not) be credited to producer John Congleton, who is widely acknowledged to have had a similar influence on St. Vincent's Actor.

Expect a full-on review of Fireworks Child in an upcoming print edition of the Observer. In the meantime, give "Prepared" a listen and/or download after the jump.
