Come Alive (EP)
Released: Jun 2014
A thick dollop of '80s guitar gloss helps flesh out the production on this stopgap EP from Tacoma-based Rachel Taylor, vocalist for indie-poppers He Is We. Although Taylor doesn't depart much from the emo-friendly hooks of her regular gig, that arena whoosh pumps up her big choruses and contributes to both the swirling ache of "Silence Looks Good On You" and throbbing opener "Porcelain" (as in, "you break me like"). Sounds like she's having fun commanding center stage, too: "Don't dance with the devil / If you can't take the heat."
