A quiet acoustic melody falls gently like a descending sun on Turtle Grenade, the debut folk project of Denise Gorrio. Her delicate finger-picking slowly unfurls with a patience that provides sullen clarity, with a reflective and uniquely penetrating warble that gives life to her intimate lyrical effusions. There's a simplicity to Gorrio's isolated meditations, sure, but when those memories burn deep within she elevates those emotions with an ardor that comes across as sincere. It's a lovingly stripped-down introduction that holds great promise.
Turtle Grenade's self-titled EP is available to stream via her official bandcamp page.
