Eyes Open Wide
A voice that demands description. Start with 10 skip around and have some fun.|

1. * Dreamy hip hop beats. Sensual vox.
2. Tribal beats transform into a psychedelic and emotive crusade.
3. Dramatic mind popping, sometimes sexual, unprotected sex.
4. * Norah, meet your maker. Evocative, promiscuous, and dirty.
5. A diaphanous lullaby fit for two.
6. 80's synth beats warp around sexually titillating melodies. Think Skin-A-Max.
7. * A very slow futuristic war. My 28.8kbps modem. Playing super mario bros on acid.
9. Lovelorn, lost, painfully alone. Slowly pushing forward through a winters night.
10. ** Cruisin' with the top down, Miami beach, all the girls are in bikinis and sunglasses, at night.
Jihae's EP "Fire Burning Rain" can best be described as earthy. Each track offers something a little different from the next. The vocals are very reminiscent of Si*se and Vienna Teng. The work as a whole is very down tempo, and the music ranges in influence from tequilla bar balladry to trip hop. |
The music never quite pulls at your soul like that of Sade or Si*Se, but the whole album is definitely more than the sum of its parts.
Definitely a group to watch as they grow.
Tracks to try: 2, 3, 7, 10
