Review by Anna Maria Stjärnell

Elya Finn’s previous CD, “Ship of Fate” was a lovely record, but her new one cuts much deeper. Her voice is charming and the jazzy feel of the album is delightful. “It Doesn’t Really Matter” is a lovely, romantic song that sees Finn play her piano with great dexterity.

“Big Eyes” is a funny, playful song. Finn’s vocal is sweet and the melody is great.

“Complication” is a wonderful song. Finn sings like a siren throughout. The song’s, light, skippy tempo makes it brilliant.

“Little Lies” is sparse and has an almost fairground feel to it. The whistled bit is ace too.

Finn has developed into a marvelous singer.
