After delighting us w/ her ‘Early Signs’ EP, Sydney’s Trash Springfield returns w/ her maiden album, ‘Escape From Those Who Care.’ Trash’s range is really on show here w/ solemn confessionals adjacent to funky party songs and brooding ballads riding shotgun w/ chugging rock songs. The familiar strains of ‘Control’ begin proceedings followed by the blazing groove of ‘Rip Off’ and the ambitious ‘Everythings Alright.’ Familiar to independent radio listeners will be the laid-back rock of ‘Confused by Early Signs,’ which is backed up by more songs covering diverse themes, ranging from confidence to diffidence and boastfulness to hopelessness. 10th track ‘Standing Around’ closes out the album. Starting w/ a lone piano, it soon evolves into a bemused ballad w/ searing strings and a desperate, impassioned vocal delivery. A very mature and impressive album from a woman who just turned 23, “Escape From Those Who Care,’ seems destined for plenty of airplay and attention over the summer.
