Dark, mellow and poetic progressive / alternative pop cabaret with an occasional hard edge.
Most recent release, the perilous beauty of madness (2009)
Elizabeth Fischer's voice is reminiscent of Marianne Faithfull or Diamanda Galas.
Dark and melancholic, intelligent poetry delivered in a raspy, powerful and very individual voice. Elizabeth Fischer has one of those strong, raw and rather atonal voices that you either love or hate; personally i love it. The band's music is rich and engaging, jazzy and rhythmic and multi-textured, and likely to catch you by surprise with some of its twists and turns. The overall effect veers between progressive rock and cabaret, with an overall mellow, laid-back feel. (damon)From the band's promotional material:

Elizabeth Fischer and Greg Reely
A powerful debut album for a new band formed of some old souls. Each song on here is meticulously crafted; from the immediate hooks of "Warm Coat" to the satirically campy "Church of the Blind" or "Well Oh Well", from the hypnotically haunting "Evening Wolves" to the plaintive "Displaced Persons", each one tells a tale, and tells it powerfully.
Thanks to (damon) for work on this entry.
