A Practice in Soft, Self Inspection
allie is the stage name of Nashville based indie singer-songwriter Allie Cuva who’s now been putting out music through this solo project going back to 2020’s Junior Coder’s Experiment debut EP.
allie’s sound may best be described as a mellow, guitar melody-heavy string of longing ballads and confessionals. Going back to their first EP and singles to the most recent debut full-length (16-track!) album maybe next time we can see common themes interconnected. Identity, the future, questioning and longing all wrapped in a soothing repetition of melancholy guitar and a soft, raw crooning voice.
The vocal talent at times is overshadowed by the guitar melody and lyrics, but the true grace of allie’s vocals is best demonstrated in the extra-stripped down acoustic track “first time (memo)” off the LP.
