Song Styles

For Christmas, I got Elle King's new album, Shake The Spirit.  I'm a big fan of Elle King; I like to describe her music as "Wild West Rock."  The thematics and lyrics remind me of the roughest parts of an old-school western.  (The two songs that most people are probably familiar with - "Exes & Ohs" and "America's Sweetheart" least fit into this mold.)

There's one song that reminds me very strongly of Maren, my narrator in Surgeburnt.  Not that I think anyone would try to babydoll her:  she's almost six feet tall, athletic, and essentially has venomous talons ...
