"Spitting Image" is the debut solo single from Sharon Silva of The Wild Reeds. While The Wild Reeds definitely fit into the folk/Americana genre, "Spitting Image" is more of an alt-rock/pop singer/songwriter track. It's an upbeat track that masks a lot of pain and emotion, which makes sense since it's about the death of Silva's mother. It's the kind of song that you'll find yourself cheerfully singing along to until you actually pay attention to the lyrics. It is a gorgeous song, and Silva's vocals do convey the emotion of the song. It's that dichotomy that makes "Spitting Image" a truly interesting song.
