Two years ago, I heard Kristin Kyrielle for the first time. Then she had recorded some songs with just piano and vocals and was on her way to record her first demo. I listened to the songs over and over again at home in my studio. There was something bombastic and some sad beauty in the songs. I was totally spellbound by her voice.
Then, when her first demo was released, it was with great anticipation, I threw myself over the songs “Faith”, “Moonbeam”, “Notebook of happy thoughts” and “Who replaced the sun”. First, I was a little disappointed … it was like something else now, now that she had a band. But after listening many times the songs stuck like a wet tongue on a frosty lamp-post in winter. I was caught again.
There’s something magical about these songs. The little quirky vocal loops, the highly distinctive voice and stylish choirs together with the dark pop-style the band delivers, make the songs simply irresistible. A bit like sushi. The first time you don’t really get it, but after eating 4-5 times you’re hooked up…
Since then she has recorded an EP “Hurt ‘til It Bleeds”. The EP with four songs is available on the band’s site, and here is a taste of it with the tracks “Believe” and “Hurt ‘til It Bleeds”.
