Leighton Meester conquered the upper east side as Blair Waldorf on Gossip Girl ... But with Heartstrings, her debut full length album, she shows she has more than one string to her bow !
Her record is diametrically opposed to what I was expecting (some club friendly pop songs like the ones she has done in the past).
The tracks are filled with dreamy surf guitars, shimmering melodies and smoky vocals and even if it is slightly overproduced and not particularly groundbreaking, Heartstrings is a pleasure to listen to. Tea and a warm blanket are recommended when playing the album ;-)
