Review by Anna Maria Stjärnell

Shari Mills and Matt Stuttard explore some dark themes on their debut album. Their multi-faceted music flows easily from the speakers.

“The Sleep” deals persuasively with insomnia, and is set to a restless beat. Shari Mills sings as soulfully as she can.

“This Aint So Easy” is trip hop with a seasick groove, Mills acts the diva beautifully.

“The Shocking Pursuit” is a stunning mini rock opera of a song. Jagged guitars and staccato rhythms frame Mills lovely singing.

“Wicked” is a jazzy nightclub number with brilliant torch singing. Mills sings of obsessive love convincingly.

Sharmills are clearly an original and gifted band.
