Tula – “Psycosomatic” EP (2010)


Independent Release

Review by Tony Cannella

Lital (Tula) Imbari is an Israeli born singer/pianist currently living in Belgium. On her debut EP “Psychosomatic” you will hear her brand of emotionally heartfelt hard rock music. Tula, herself is an accomplished pianist and that is quite evident while listening to the 4-tracks provided here. “My Music My Drug” starts off with a slow tempo before slowly building and becoming a huge sounding opener. The first thing that struck me about “Psychosomatic” is the potential commercial viability that the CD possesses, thanks in part to Tula’s passionate vocal delivery. The next track, “Hey You” begins with a piano and a bit of orchestration and transcends into a haunting ballad/mid-tempo rocker. Again, Tula’s voice really shines through and the choir vocals near the end of the track really pushed this one over-the-top for me. Track 3, “Psychosomatic” begins with piano once again and the breathy vocals of Tula join in. The final track, “Trees Can Cry” brings the CD to a great, moody conclusion, and sees Tula sharing vocals with a male to close things out. There is something infinitely like-able about Tula and her freshman offering “Psychosomatic”. Perhaps it is the fact that it is quite different than the usual female fronted stuff that is out there these days. No opera, grunts, power metal anywhere in sight. Of course, the female metal genre has never been in better shape than it is now and Tula is an exciting new voice that is sure to draw attention.
