Review by Anna Maria Stjärnell

English singer Chloe March has a gorgeous voice and a way with writing great songs.

The song “Diamond Skin” evokes eighties singer Virgina Astley. There’s also a trace of David Sylvian’s jazz-tinted sound. Emma Bell’s French horn adds a delightful touch.

“Snowdrop” continues the sophisticated songwriting. March’s clear voice and the air of melancholy in this song are just lovely.

“The Fisherman’s House” is an evocative tale. The utterly gorgeous melody and March’s singing are exceptional.

“Dog-Rose” is a minimalist song in the vein of Sylvian’s “September”. March’s voice and a piano are all we here and all there needs to be.

“Snowdrop” is a thing of beauty and a bright future must beckon for Chloe March.
