EVERYTHING WE NEVER ASKED FOR - The debut album by Sinnober (multi-instrumentalist songwriters Sebastian and Natalie Brice) opens with a smooth Folk Pop ballad. Beautiful harmonies and light melodies ease you into this album. Reminds me a little of Simon and Garfunkel in its composition.
MARIA - A little more stripped back than the previous track, this Everly Brothers styled track focuses on the brilliant vocal arrangements before reaching a minor crescendo towards the end. Nice and mellow.
GO BACK - Another really polished song from this debut album. Its 60s style Alternative Pop has slight hints of Swing and Jazz.
REALITY TV - This slow Pop Rock ballad reminds me of Bon Jovi's Acoustic numbers where they slow everything down and its almost grass roots. Really lovely song.
TALK ME DOWN - A pure, live sounding Acoustic Pop ballad with hints of Rock. Just sounds amazing and even better in headphones, its like you're in the studio with them!
UNTIL IT RAINS - This Pop Rock slow tempo track has a little Grunge or Gothic feel to it. It has moodiness and melancholy and is a great track.
HAVE A LITTLE LOVE - This sweet Folk Pop ballad makes me think of Bangles and Susanna Hoff's breathy vocals sung with emotion over a sparse backing track. For a debut album this set is an accomplished set of songs by such a new artist.
ZIA - A mellow instrumental to finish the album. It is eerie, sometimes medieval sounding with hints of Eastern influence. Laid back and cool.
