In Winterwell New Jersey’s very own Marie Hsiao a.k.a. Mree comes with a really peculiar and authentic sound rarely heard now in days by combining Experimental, Ambient and Folk music. “Into The Well” kicks off this record and immediately we can hear some of Imogen Heap especially in the haunting vocals and Sigur Ros in the dreamy sound.”Night Owls” follows the same line as the first track though we now less electronic and in exchange we got this cool guitar riff and there’s some of Taylor Swift in her vocals.
“To See The Light” starts with this piano keys been randomly played and eventually turns into this really beautiful piece especially in the end where we got all this three vocals once doing some harmonies, another following the melody and the last one is singing the chorus and with the simple drum beats, its pure art. “On Echo” has this wonderful, epic and haunting violins and overall background sound with many cinematic effects that blends with Mree undercurrent sound that results in a song that evokes and lift your spirit to a state not even Buddhist monks can reach. “Break My Hand” follows the same path though there’s not too much vocals and is more ambient/instrumental, once again we hear Imogen Heap’s strong influence in her music.
“Monsters” is an upbeat track with an incredible bass line, there’s a harp and really tropical where we see Hsiao’s fun side. On the other hand, “The Search” is one of most quiet track of the record, with the male vocals and indie folk vibe, we get this really Of Monsters and Men meets Bon Iver sound. This also happens in “In The Morning” with some great and catchy guitar riffs and haunting vocals, it gives you chill at first though it eventually turns into a more upbeat track. “Winter” and “A Song For The Star” reminded me for some reason to the great music composer Ludovico Einaudi’s style of music, really touching.
“Lullaby” close this record and as just like the title indicates, it’s a plain simple song compared to the others.
In conclusion, here’s a record that really worth it. Maybe is not for everybody, surely to people that are looking for something more aggressive and powerful, this might not be your thing. However, the vocals are remarkable and so is the production, if you are into the band’s I have been mentioning, you would totally LOVE her music and this album.
