Single Review
Zee Avi
“Bitter Heart”

4.5 of 5 stars

From the folky corridors of Jack Johnson’s Brushfire Records comes the label’s first lady: Zee Avi. The songstress shines on her debut “Bitter Heart,” with heartrending words set to a sunny melody. Her lilting vocals soothe as she croons jazzy warbles with graceful ease over a bouncing double bass and brushed drums. Lyrics like “Bitter heart tries to keep it all inside … Bitter heart is getting just a little fragile,” are easier to swallow when complemented by Avi’s playful “doo doo” and “dah dah” injections. Her happy blend of jazzy pop is love at first listen.
