Eryn Allen Kane: Aviary Act 1- EP Review – The Concept Of The Bird In The Cage
Eryn Allen Kane, Detroit’raised, Chicago-based Singer/Songwriter/Actress,
Is that praised artist that raises the concept of the bird in a cage with her newly recently released EP, Aviary Act 1.
Considering her message along her music, we understand that the cage, or the aviary she’s sitting in
Seems to represent all what separate her from what she’s aspiring.
This aviary stands for the Lies over the Truth,
Pain over Healing,
Ignorance over learning,
Oppression over Freedom,
Depression and Darkness over Life and Faith.
Eryn Allen Kane, on the other hand, stands for anyone captive in a hopeless world,
Naked and vulnerable as new-born baby at the mercy of a bloody, cruel and sad world.
But, keeping her head up, she looks up for new perspectives, aspiring to better prospects
Waiting for freedom, for when it comes, nothing will stop the wings of an early bird ready to fly high in the sky.
Bass Song is the perfect introduction to this project.
The deep notes, recalling the darkness of the cage, is greatly contrasted by the explosive and vivid chorus with its hints of funk and jazz.
This introduces us to the Eryn’s organic artistry and expressive over impulsive instrumentals,
As impulsive as a bird fighting with its wings in an aviary.
Have Mercy the most stripped down song, the purest, the most powerful.
This must be the most heartfelt prayer for Direction, Love and Protection in a dark, cold and scary world.
Eryn embodies perfectly that miserable looking for a light to shine, and who tries to keep the Faith with her blessings left.
Slipping is the actual rendition of a never-ending disillusion that goes on and on, as all we want to see
Is our beautiful illusion, which could drive us to an ugly depression.
However, the guitar in it, recalls our mind to calm and peacefulness, along the green trees.
Despite all these bursting emotions, greatly interpreted in Eryn’s face, Music is the highway to healing.
After a song like ‘Piano Song’, and after such an experience through the roughness of our emotions and condition,
This song is the perfect closer to leave light, embracing Freedom and peace of mind, thanks to its savor of optimism.
As long as there’s a bit of hope, life goes on, and Eryn Allen Kane powerfully blows our mind with this wind of Hope.
The main act of the Aviary is now highly anticipated.
