Sometimes I like music hard, sometimes I like it fast, Sometimes I like it fun, sometimes I like it sad. But then there are the times when I like it mellow. The new CD from Australian artist Orisha proves that you can have a bit of mellow, but still get it served with a good dose of edge.
I like that.
The write up at CD Baby says:
Lush, vocal-based electronic-glitch-pop, heartfelt lyrics and lavish soundscapes create a moody sonic journey. Trip-hop and chanteuse influenced, beats, glitches, melodies and harmonies.
Well, that pretty much sums it up. CD Baby also compares the music to BjÃ¶rk, Kate Bush, and Massive Attack. Not a bad group to be associated with.
I am particularly drawn to the song Waiting for a Change. The song has a haunting quality that really moves me. It is definitely one of the standout tracks on a superb album. Although all tracks have their charm, other standouts for me are the tracks Falling Open and Se Tu M’ami, the later which has a stronger beat and adds to the overall feel of this release.
The tracks are:
- Left Alone
- Waiting for a Change
- Falling Open
- Beautiful Thing
- Se Tu M’ami
- 6:13 am
I am the kind of guy that listens to classical and death metal, and most flavors in between, except country of course. Still, electronic ambient, trip-hop, whatever you want to call it, if done right moves me when I am in the right mood. If you find yourself in the mood for some electronic goodness, I highly recommend this latest release from Orisha.
Some great tunes from down under.
