Little Scream proves to us in its name that its music can be quite contradictory – and that’s OK to an extent. Little Scream (Laurel Sprengelmeyer) uses her piercing pitch to seduce you into the not so painfully slow record. With a vocal range that matches the likes of fellow Canadian pop stars Tegan and Sara, Little Scream produces a slower album with less instrumental to help focus the story. The Heron and the Fox is a soulful tune that spotlights the blues from Little Scream’s sound, while songs such as Cannons are faster paced with more a pop-rock tone. Overall, the album sends chills down your spine with its vocal density, while maintaining the slower, less instrumentally focused aspect of the record.
