Unguarded, which was released in stores and on iTunes, has a total of 12 songs which includes Morris’ hit single, “Unguarded.”
When listening to the single “Unguarded,” which is personally my favorite song from the album, I felt as if I was listening to Ellie Goulding, a pop artist from England.
Not only does Morris sound similar to Goulding, but she also compares to Coldplay, and Lana Del Rey giving off a pop-like vibe at times but also toning it down and having a resemblance to Birdy. The song that reminded me of Birdy is Morris’ single “Don’t Go.”
“My debut album is me figuring out who I am,” said Morris on digitalspy.com.
“I guess that has been the process of making the album; me figuring out who I am and what I want from everything,” continued Morris. “I wanted to make sure I am the person I wanted to continue to be before I release a debut, you know?”
On September 2011, Morris signed to Atlantic records, which later led to her first debut single “Don’t go,” which released in 2012.
The song was featured in the final episode of the sixth season of the television drama series “Skins.”
Lyrics in the song “Closer,” “A little give and take is never bound to break the kind of closeness that we keep a bond invisible beyond the physical as I let you slip away” give the listeners perspective on how Morris is feeling.
I felt the album cover, featuring Morris on the front, was a great idea for her debut album, because it gives me the impression that this is all about her.
Powerful lyrics like this from “Closer,” show her vulnerability.
The lyrics “way beneath the weak surface of it all, I spy a girl only three foot tall that keeps me from drowning she keeps me from drowning in it all.”
Underrated, Morris delivers a spectacular debut album. I encourage everyone to listen to experience a new style of music.
