Where You Belong
An intoxicated blend of lush guitars, scattered electronics and soft vocals spread over throbbing basslines and a steady pulse of drumbeats. Conceived in the midst of upheaval, it's bittersweet honesty explodes for brief moments then settles back down like a passing blizzard. Square on Three Sides, the album's first single, opens like a honey bee making it's daily rounds then turns right back around and stings you with a burst of buzzing guitars. As the pain wears off, second track Why Were You oozes it's way in with morphing bass and effects, like taking a shot of Absinthe and stepping out onto the dancefloor. The album progresses through a range of moods - from the loving warmth of Thrown Stones, the dark mysterious calm of It's All Over, to the playful innocence of One Life - before resolving itself in the cathartic climax of the title track. This isn't a Chardonnay, it's a Merlot. Rich, velvety, and deep enough to drown in while you sink back into your couch with your loved one.
