The May Street Project
The 21-year-old Texan’s wise-beyond-her-years debut is a lively taste of alterna songwriting set to boom-box drums and bass, Nashville strings, swirling synth, ambient sounds, and crunching guitars. Holding it all together are her soulful vocals (think Dido’s spunky kid sister meets Shelby Lynne) and confessional lyrics. Seger, who lives in London, has crafted a transatlantic groove that’s musically modern yet timeless in its themes. Who knew a broken heart could feel this good?
