Those credentials certainly sound impressive for a newcomer, and Almost Gone shows exactly why people should be paying attention to the young singer-songwriter. It’s a slow folk track with a country edge to it, with desert style guitar rumblings mixing well with Eileen’s soft vocals. It’s a pretty track, but it also has a dark edge to it, and we love the way her music is heading.
