You definitely know Suz Slezak from her fifteen years as a member of David Wax Museum, but she's starting to step on on her own with her debut solo single (Not counting her 2015 album of lullabies, Watching the Nighttime Come)! "Beautiful Mess" presents a lot for David Wax Museum fans to love without sounding anything like her other musical project. It's much more pop than we're used to, and more singer/songwriter than traditional folk. That's not to say "Beautiful Mess" is a pop song. There is far too much rock guitar in her along with some indie rock distortion to be a pop song. This is a great showcase for Slezak's songwriting abilities along with a way for her to experiment in other directions than she normally can within David Wax Museum.
