Austin singer-songwriter Christina Cavazos is only just turning 17 and already her musical maturity is fully evident on her second EP, Cold, due Feb. 24, 2017. The album showcases her crystal clear soprano and accomplished songwriting. It also finds her teaming up with accomplished producer Louie Lino (Nada Surf, Ume, Matt Pond PA), who layers Cavazos’ vocals over lush sonic collages to create an elegant dream-pop mix full of allure. Despite her young age, Cavazos is something of an old soul, citing a wide range of influences including the Beatles, Aimee Mann, Ingrid Michelson, Bon Iver, Ben Gibbard (Death Cab for Cutie), the Civil Wars, and Fleetwood Mac. Of course, it’s impossible deny that she has already found a sound that is all her own.
Today Glide Magazine is premiering one of the standout songs from the Cold EP, “Over Me”. The song is a slow building slice of Americana that feels personally close to the singer and also features sweeping, lush instrumentals.
Christina Cavazos reflects on the song:
“I wrote this song during my last week living in Boston this past summer and it kind of sprung from this idea that it’s hard to appreciate what you have when you never really got over what came before it. The song itself started out with just me and my guitar playing two notes over and over again, so it was very raw. At first we (Louie and I) weren’t sure how to produce it and not lose the atmosphere that the song held when it was just me, but, once we got the musicians into studio, everything came together. The feeling of this song ended up guiding the feeling of the rest of the record.”
