Dreaming In Slow Motion (Red Robin)
Dreaming In Slow Motion, a stately album by Cardiff-based west Walian Danielle Lewis, creeps up on you from a two-metre distance and then gives you a big hug, though likely one of farewell. Its tunes come at a languid pace: minimal instrumentation on piano, brushed drums, and vibraphone, while atmospheric guitars and understated synths from Alex Hibbert and producer Secondson give Lewis’ warm, rich voice the perfect grounding to float above.
A Woman Like You and Temporary find the sweet spot between Karen Carpenter and the Cowboy Junkies; the title track is a slice of late-night Julee Cruise cherry pie, Weyes Blood is a kindred spirit on Flower, My Youth and Help Me, In My Sleep, with Danielle Lewis’s treated voice and ethereal instrumentation throughout Dreaming In Slow Motion, feels like one of This Mortal Coil’s dreams made flesh. Intense torch songs Slow, Sad And Real and Life Of Worth, meanwhile, both out-noir Lana Del Rey.
