Genre/Influences: Electro, Ambient-Pop, Ethereal-Pop.

Background/Info: “Chrysalis” is the third album by Zanias. Behind this project is hiding Alison Lewis aka ‘Zoe Zanias’ who you should know from projects like Keluar and of course Linea Aspera. The Australian born artist strikes back with eight new songs.
Content: The new album is a way to exorcize personal experiences and thoughts which have been transposed into a heavenly, sweet, Electronic creation. The songs are mixing different Electro influences which are mainly mixing Ambient and Pop. The vocals have something heavenly and sensual.
+ + + : It’s hard to define the sound universe of this artist but different parts evoke to me the sensuality of Delerium. I like the way different influences have been mixed while driven by down tempo rhythms. It’s a fully enjoyable sound experience to dream away upon serious themes.
– – – : I regret the work is only featuring 8 tracks while I’m missing a true apotheosis.
Conclusion: This album is fully accessible and definitely open for a wider audience.
Best songs: “Burial”, “Closing”, “Lovelife”.
