Vancouver-based indie folk artist Sam Lynch has released her debut album. The LP, titled Little Disappearance, was released October 9 via Canada record label Birthday Cake and features seven tracks.

The material as a whole blends an indie folk backdrop against recurring concepts of loss—of self, time, and youth. Lynch describes the themes of Little Disappearance as “the experience of moving through your days, but feeling like little pieces are going missing as it’s all happening.”

Album closer and highlight, “Keeping Time”, is no exception. Featuring lyrics about the loss of something to hold on to, the track is an emotional crescendo of folk styles and cinematic flourishes. Carefully composed instrumentation complements Lynch’s controlled singing voice nicely.

A wistful guitar line and saddened string parts taint the song in melancholy until the track’s glamorous and near-triumphant conclusion offers a glimmer of hope.

Little Disappearance is the latest release in Lynch’s ever-growing discography. A seasoned musician, Lynch has been writing songs from a young age, and her latest release is one of her most vulnerable artistic expressions yet.
