The debut of this Swiss project sounds mature, with pleasant vocals and lots of different instruments like guitar, synths, strings and voice harmonies. This project includes members of bands like Cortez, Kruger, No Sun in San Francisco and Sonograph. But the music on this album doesn’ t sound like these bands. No metal, mostly we hear alternative rock en indie.

On the whole everything sounds nice and sweet with a little angelsometimes in the form of synth sounds or tendencies to post hardcore, but all mixed as easy listening.

Starter ‘Haunted By A Dream’ sets the tone: semi acoustic guitar, easy singalong chorus and some strings for the atmosphere. Well worked out melodies as well. Nice and organic starter. ‘At All Costs’ starts with some dubstep and electro elements. The acoustic tune contrasts nicely, just like the talking halfway. A lot of diversity during this six minutes song. ‘Life in Every Breath’ is the first single and begins with a nice guitar tune. Later the song burst open with the chorus and for the first time we hear a little anger in the vocals. A very nice song. ‘Treasures’ and ‘A Voice of My Own’ are rather dream pop tracks with beautiful percussion. ‘Roseland’ and ‘We Won’ t Stay’ last both 9 minutes and contain all the elements of this album: fragile, poppy, rocky with some grunt in the choruses. 

You hear two kinds of songs: fragile and more rocking tracks, all worked out well and fascinating to listen to. Especially as there’ s no formula for the song writing: long, simple, short and complex songs. With no doubt a nice pearl to discover.

Het debuut van dit Zwiterse project klinkt volwassen: aangename stem, veel verschillende instrumenten zoals synths, strijkers en meerdere stemharmonieën. Dit project bestaat uit leden van Cortez, Kruger, No Sun In San Francisco en Sonograph. De muziek op is wel helemaal anders dan van eerder genoemde bands. Metal en dergelijke meer vind je hier niet terug. Wel voornamelijk Indie en alternative rock.

Over het algemeen klinkt alles heel aardig en zoet met hier en daar een weerhaakje in de vorm van elektrosounds of een neiging tot post-hardcore. Maar alles is wel zo gemixt dat het vlot beluisterbaar blijft.

Opener ‘Haunted By A Dream’ zet meteen de toon: semi-akoestische gitaar, een vlot meezingrefrein en wat strijkers die de sfeer aanzwengelen. Voorts goed uitgewerkte melodieën. Leuke opener. Waar de opener nog helemaal organisch klinkt, begint ‘At All Costs’ eerder als een dubstepelectrosong. De akoestische gitaarriedel kontrasteert mooi alsook het gepraat hier en daar. Heel veel afwisseling in dit 6 minuten durende liedje. ‘Life in Every Breath’ is de eerste single en begint met een mooi gitaarriedeltje en de song breekt open met het refrein met voor het eerst wat nijdigheid in de zang. Een heel geslaagd nummer. ‘Treasures’ en ‘A voice of My Own’ zijn eerder dreampopsongs voorzien van mooie percussie. ‘Roseland’ en ‘We Won’ t Stay’ duren beide negen minuten en bevatten zowat alle elementen van dit album: breekbaar, poppy, rockend tot zelfs bijna grunt in het refrein.

Je hoort breekbare songs en meer rockende, allemaal mooi uitgewerkt en boeiend om naar te luisteren. Vooral omdat er niet echt een formule qua songschrijven is. Er zijn lang uitgesponnen, variërende alsook korte en eenvoudige nummers te horen. Een pareltje dat het ontdekken waard is!
