Plumb Appetizers
Posted November 03, 2017
By JJFrancesco_NRT, Staff Reviewer


Fans knew Plumb was working on new music as her single "God Help Me" has seen growing radio presence. But they likely didn't expect to get a release so soon. While a proper full-length follow-up to Exhale still seems a ways off, Plumb has surprised us with the God Help Me EP.

At just 5 tracks, it's more an appetizer than a full course musical release. This means each of the songs has a greater load to pull to hold its own. The aforementioned title track is up to task, a strong offering in signature Plumb style that is sure to be a highlight of this stage of her career. "I'm Not Alone" joins it in excelling in the area of emotional ballads. There's a power to the vocals and a vulnerability that makes it a logical spiritual sequel to her hit "Need You Now." 

Other songs bring in some of the electronics that are dominating pop radio right now. While no stranger to the electronic dance sound (Plumb's other signature is arguably the success of remixes), these songs ride the middle between her standard studio sound and full-on remix. This works well for "Acrobat," fittingly enough as the song talks about balancing our strength and the demands on us like an acrobat. "Crazy for You" worked less for me. I like the melody, but I felt like it didn't get the chance to breathe in the beats. 

At just 5 tracks, this EP may leave fans a bit starved for a more substantial release. But these songs are strong enough to tide us over until Plumb is ready to release more. 

The Bottom Line: While unlikely to topple her magnum opuses, Plumb still reminds us on the God Help Me EP that she's one of the most powerful voices in the business. Even a small-scale release like this from an artist of her caliber deserves your attention. 

For Fans Of: Plumb remixes, Hollyn
