REVIEW album Karuna Tipping Point (Single)

Karuna Stand Up With 'Tipping Point'

Tipping Point (Single)


Abigail Rooley-Towle of Karuna is giving me chills but for the right reasons with new single, 'Tipping Point'. The new single from the innovative group also comes with a second single, 'The Shape Of Water', both of which get me thinking.

'Tipping Point' coincidentally weaves into a number of current world issues at the time of writing this review, one of which is the climatic challenges that the entire planet is facing and will continue to meet for some time unless more is done to safeguard the earth and its inhabitants' futures. It's a release that strikes a chord of urgency, and the lovely delivery creates an almost paradox, reflecting beautiful tones on an all-important and frightening topic that we need to confront now more than ever.

The band's early folk direction is evident here, and it follows a style that the band established with their 'Heartsease' release. Abi also brings a one-of-a-kind vocal performance to the forefront of modern music, and she taps into a sound that few others are exploring.

The brilliance of 'Tipping Point' is that it has so many twists and turns that it's impossible to predict what will happen next. Furthermore, it develops through time, much like a tree budding, and it understands when to pull us up and when to lower me back to earth gently. In addition, 'The Shape Of Water' sits alongside it in a similar light, bolstering the message even more and making me want to make a change before it's too late.
