Genre/Influences: Ethereal-wave, trip-pop, experimental.
Background/Info: Some of you might remember Rhea’s Obsession, a Canadian band that was mainly active in the second part of the 90s. They released two albums. Indarra is not really a resurrection of this band, but it features singer Sue Hotton who has been joined by numerous guest artists.
Content: “Walk On Fire” is a truly music trip mixing multiple influences. Most of the songs are pretty dreamy-like, mainly driven by a slow rhythm and Sue Hotton’s sensual timbre of voice. The compositions have been composed with electro gear, and also with authentic instruments. The dreamy atmospheres are sometimes a little bit mysterious, which might remind you of Delerium. I can also mention Massive Attack for the darker and trip-pop driven passages.
+ + + : This album is al cool surprise. The music has something pretty authentic and artistic. The songs are styled and refined. It often sounds as a delicious sonic caress, which is accentuated by the impressive vocals of Sue Hotton and the mysterious atmospheres. The album is progressively growing reaching multiple states of climax.
– – – : There’s some versatility running through this work, which I can imagine might not please all listeners.
Conclusion: This is an album I highly recommend to music lovers in search of a truly artistic creation. Indarra brings different influences together on a graceful and fully enjoyable work.
