Product notities

The six song debut EP Theorem from Darien is a journey of story and sound that leaves you with one desire when it's over: to hit play again and again. She leads you through songs of magic and whimsy, love and loss, seamlessly moving between genres of chamber pop, electronica and singer-songwriter. Darien's vocal delivery and lyrical acumen is riveting throughout. Accompanied by stellar production, the Theorem EP is an exciting prelude of what's to come from this new artist. Theorem opens with Avalanche, a song of sad beauty about an addict who was loved. The instrumentation is muscularly sparse, with a triggered kick drum in the intro that pounds like an exploding heartbeat. By the first chorus the band is locked into a groove that backs Darien's vulnerable and powerful vocals. The track Chandelier follows with Darien letting you peak inside her mind as she daydreams about animating a scene to her liking while riffing on religion, free will and pop culture. The backing music is filled with driving and whimsical drum patterns, sympathetic and increasingly intertwining cellos, a walking bass line and hard panned acoustic guitars. The whole effect is somewhere between the Beatles' Two of Us and Eleanor Rigby. 5th and 6th slows things down with an intimate lover's poem about the, "light between my 5th and 6th rib that burns brighter when you're near." Darien delivers the lines so tenderly that you're lulled into her private revelry. The band is subdued and gentle making room for her plaintive and unrushed vocals. The next two tracks, Marianas Trench and Halley's Comet, depart for urban edged electronica with more opaque story lines and impressionistic lyrics. Darien's vocal flexibility is highlighted as she drives the clubby production, no longer vulnerable, striding confidently like a modern day Nancy Sinatra. The closer Thereom is a minute and a half of stark brilliance. Just a guitar and voice illuminate the ashes of a falling out between friends. When the harmony enters on, "you told me I better move on" the two vocal lines start to intertwine, circling in haunting intervals until Darien's lead vocal breaks solo again ending in the aching, "you were what I wanted." The performance is one to behold. Throughout the CD, each song is treated as it's own work, like dedicatedly designed rooms in an architect's house. Each track flows into the other, moving across a wide spectrum of styles. Darien's vocals lead from start to finish, whether out front, nestled in the mix, or bouncing around the spectrum during more adventurous moments. Theorem is a thoroughly satisfying debut work from an artist to be watched.
