Review by Anna Maria Stjärnell
The dreamy sounds of Petracovich are created by Jessica Peters and some ace musicians. She sings in a confident but soft voice.
“Fall from trees” is sublime. Its drifting textures and angelic vocals entrance. It’s a little bit like a less world-weary Portishead.
“Bird’s in Flight” has a euphoric feel to it despite being pretty slow. The harmonies are astonishing.
“Coyote and the Moon” is like a pop version of an ambient mood piece.
“Driving Home” is a more creative take on Americana than I’ve heard in a long while. Its subtle use of strings is lovely.
“Company” is heartbreakingly lovely and has a disarming simplicity to it. Peters’ delivery is haunting here.
It’s a marvellous debut that bodes well for Petracovich’s future.
