LOVERS AND POETS
I was excited about this new band as soon as I heard them first on KGRL
. The duo of Bryan Talbot
and Shannon Hurley
plays some kind of pop with chilling downtempo
melodies and an electronic sound, they call it chill-pop. The 3-track self-titled EP doesn't disappoint the fans who love Shannon Hurley
's previous works nor the lovers of good pop
genres. “Wonderfully atmospheric trip-hop! Melancholy and beautiful all at once.” as I found in one of the reviews on Amiestreet
where you can purchase the songs of this debut. It's the combination of Shannon's lovely voice with beautiful love songs and the smooth chilling electronic sound, comparable to a collaboration of Moby
that makes me listen to the songs over and over.
The singer/songwriter Shannon Hurley is well known to me since I discovered her album Ready to Wake Up
begin of 2008 and her Flower-Powered Artist of August 2008 feature
(it's definitely worth to have a look at it and don't miss to watch the awesome videos there).
