Pavla Mikulasova – Mirror (CD – Decadence Records)Posted on 16/12/12
Pavla Mikulasova was born in the Czech Republic. She later on moved to Italy and is living nearby Rome. She’s a classically trained musician who has achieved her debut full length on Decandence Records.
The first notes and song reveal a sensual and delicate vocalist. The way of singing matches with the moody and somewhat wafting music characterized by refined arrangements. “Anonymous Day” is an excellent teaser, which is succeeded by the more into trip-pop minded “Black Out”. Pavla beautiful timbre of voice emerges to the surface like a flower in the summer morning. The mix of sensuality and melancholia is a successful match. The ballad-styled “Desaparecidos” reminds me a bit of Kate Bush and An Pierlé.
The album is nicely moving on until reaching the beautiful and Hooverphonic-styled “The Little Angels”. Pavla Mikulasova is now singing a whispering way while the music again moves into enlightening, but moody passages. The very evasive “Overdose” is one more noticeable tracks that caught my attention for its piano arrangements. The song also features guest vocals by Roberto Conforti (Pulcher Femina). Talking about guest vocalists the song “The Magic Mirror” features vocals by Natassja Kinski. That’s a quite surprising and noticeable presence, but the song in itself still is a great piece of music. It sounds a bit more into good-old new-wave music with Cocteau Twins as the main reference.
Two more songs I want to mention are “Sweet Dreams” (which is not a cover version of The Eurythmics legendary hit) for a new trip-pop exploration and the magical voice of Pavla and “Sweet Girl” for its ethereal consonance and neo-classic flavor.
“Mirror” is an accomplished debut reflecting the talent of this female musician. This is an album with a unique sound and that will possibly appeal for lovers of moody pop and ethereal music.
