The album feels like itâ€™s marinated in seawater and thereâ€™s a lot of rainy songs in there to. Searching For Lukeâ€™s lyric fills your head with pictures and the melodies do often flow into a dark lullaby chorus with shades of romantic cynicism. â€œLock Inside A Keyâ€ is a cottage, warmed up with crackling timber, to enter a crystal clear autumn night. The songwriter periodically paints and therefore she decorates the album with her own artwork.
"The instrumentation which is mostly acoustic guitar, cello, harp and saw begins to make sense as they chorus together adding an elemental feel to everything, a slightly unhinged undercurrent. She is at her best when throwing on the black robes - â€˜Trees of Miseryâ€™ draws everything towards it, instruments swirling with a negative energy, her vocals world-weary; like Heathcliff mourning Cathy calling across wild moors, it is certainly the diurnal desires that she is interested in."
