"Jenn Grant's music has always mirrored her emotions. Orchestra for the Moon, the Halifax, NS-based singer-songwriter's debut, showed us her spunky, wide-eyed naivety. Then, her 2009 release, Echoes, brought us to a heavy place filled with heartbreak, loneliness and mourning. Now, with Honeymoon Punch, Grant is ready to pull us out of the depression that Echoes left us in and show us the goofy, happy friskiness associated with cuddling a loved one on a couch. Yup, this whimsical sweetheart is totally drunk on cupid's scotch. The record kicks things off with the groovy, up-tempo "Oh My Heart"; you can tell by the growl in her voice that she's smitten. The jazzy, sultry, bold woman she unleashes via her playful lyricism is completely contagious, tickling every mischievous bone in your body. "How I Met You" and "Walk Away" toy with synthesizers, marking a departure for the folk artist, but they work beautifully with each song's get-up-and-dance attitude. This lovebird's real portrait is painted by "Getcha Good," where she kicks off her boots and wraps herself in her favourite patchwork quilt while smiling coyly at her significant other: "I'm your lady/I'm your fire/Catch me if you can/I'm wild for you." Rawr."
