Loaded Gun is a well-crafted collection of seven songs from one of Liverpool’s hidden gems and perfectly showcases singer-songwriter Batty’s polished style of acoustic-driven pop. Batty utilises a combination of acoustic guitar, electric guitar, keyboard, percussion, and strings to deliver confident songs such as the uplifting Higher Ground and the jaunty Give It Heart. A couple of departures from this formula in terms of style include title track Loaded Gun, a moody affair in a minor key where the electric guitar takes the lead, helped with rolling cymbals, haunting string arrangement and military drum refrain. The beautiful, piano-based ballad Something In The Atmosphere is my favourite song and the perfect way to close the EP.
