Promise & the Monster? Long story! I totally fell in love with her debut album “Transparent Knives” released back in 2007, when she was still signed on Imperial Recordings. Later, in 2011, she released a great but surpriseless second album named “Red Tide”. And this year, came out “Feed the fire”.
What has changed between her debut and this come back album? Nothing much. Maybe it is a little bit less minimalist, but the sound remains mysterious, very David Lynchy (in this respect, the “fire” to feed refers probably to the famous Twin Peaks “Fire, walk with me”). And since I am into a name dropping phase, I realize I was quite correct when I first label her as the “new Stina Nordenstam” in my first post dedicated to her.
“Feed the fire” is therefore a cinematic piece of music. A proper album that puts you into a unique atmosphere. A beautiful gem frightening and delicate at the same time.Tweet
