Banoffee’s debut album, Look At Us Now Dad, mixes traditional pop beats with engaging electronic sounds and a bit of rap to dive into topics such as addiction, obsession, heartbreak and resurrection.
The first song, Tennis Fan (feat. Empress Of), eases the listener into the album with a simple and catchy yet expressive groove that helps lighten the mood. As the album progresses, Banoffee introduces alternative harmonies and interludes to give depth to her messages. Through these stylistic effects, the listener has room to interpret the messages in a personalised way.
Banoffee’s smooth voice along with changing tempos and diverse moods make her sincere lyrics more effective and interesting to listen to.
Look At Us Now Dad is an album capable of taking listeners through an emotional journey within songs and throughout the album.
