Review by Anna Maria Stjärnell

Erin Welton and Scott Ferrell make up Autumn’s Grey Solace. The duo spins a heavenly, ethereal sound on their new disc. Welton’s soaring voice should calm any stressed-out soul in seconds.

Opener “Human Shell” sounds like Cocteau Twins with audible words. Welton’s voice weaving round a soft melody.

“Dormant” is sweet and has a gorgeous musical backing by Ferrell.

“A Tangle of scars” belies its title by sounding restful and lovely.

“All inside a tangle of scars/Always have a tortuous way” sings Welton winsomely.

The catchy yet fragile “Hollow Girl” sees her singing at its best.

This album is a great listen from start to finish.
