Album Name: Facettes
Year/Label: 2004 / Independent
Review by Anna Maria Stjärnell
The French duo Eilera consist of Eilera and Loic Tezenas. Their music is a mix of an intriguing mix of Eilera’s Sinead-ish lead vocals and folk and metal.
“Strength of My Hate” is atmospheric, like a softer Nightwish. Eilera’s voice soars above a distinctive rhythm.
“Never Ending Tale” is a darker version of Clannad’s Celtic sound. The grand sweep is suitable for a soundtrack.
The ballad “Inside My Cave” puts the emphasis on Eilera’s lovely voice.
The techno strains of “Girl/woman” brings Björk to mind.
“Uncomprehension” is unashamedly epic. Eilera’s angelic vocals take off in spectacular fashion.
“Facettes” is a brilliant debut from a band that should be going places.
