Taylor Penrose, “Gives Me Everything” (2015): One Track Mind

Share this:

To provide their cracking self-titled debut album from 2013 added visibility, the Initiative has been producing videos of the featured songs and sharing them on the internet. The Australia band’s most recent presentation, the Taylor Penrose-sung “Gives Me Everything” bears all the required particulars to constitute a hit single.

Driven by Penrose’s southern-shaded soul pop vocals that evoke a neat cross between Jackie DeShannon and Freda Payne, “Gives Me Everything” is supported by equally outstanding instrumentation. The guitars pulsate with melody and harmony, while the brass section furnishes the already plucky song with an extra bout of vim and vigor.

Bubbling and bouncing to a gingerly beat, Taylor Penrose’s “Gives Me Everything” eloquently communicates the joy of a rewarding relationship. Filled with lots of love and smiles, here’s a song designed to lift the heart and make the listener glad to be alive.
