Review by Paul Monkhouse for MPM
Stepping away from the folky storytelling of Americana, this slice of perfect, soaring Country pop sees Hayley Jensen with her biggest song yet.
Destined to be the soundtrack for a thousand Summers and countless television shows and films, ‘Fireworks’ has the broad appeal and killer hooks that may make the purists blanche but proves impossible not to sing along to.
Once heard, never forgotten, this is the ideal song to see the Australian star go truly global and showing that the downhome rootsy desert sounds aren’t only restricted to America but her Antipodean homeland has equally wide spaces.
From ‘Australian Idol’ to the Country music halls of fame, this songbird shows that the sky is truly the limit if you aim high.
