Having made an impact originally in the 1980s as a vocalist with Sunset Gun, and then with 4AD stalwarts, This Mortal Coil, Louise disappeared from the music scene, but has spent almost seven years creating her solo debut. At the age of 49, she steps into the spotlight with a gorgeous and simple album that highlights her powerful voice, thanks to considerate arrangements by collaborator and co-composer Irvin Duguid.
At times, her vocal reminds you of Kate Bush in its confidence, especially on “Mimi”, “Rhoda”, “High” and “Remember”. The release, a very personal journey for the singer, was funded through the direct-to-fan platform PledgeMusic, and deserves to get wider notice.
