Biography

It’s been nearly seven years since celebrated duo Azure Ray released their critically acclaimed album Hold On Love. It’s been a long wait for music fans, but thankfully that wait is about to come to an end.

Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

Having landed a guest spot on Moby's 18, these two Georgia girls may be in for more attention than they ever bargained for. Maria Taylor and Orenda Fink's sophomore album is all wispy voices and ethereal acoustic guitars, the kind of music made by sensitive souls who would probably have a nervous breakdown if ever approached by strangers for autographs. "It's funny how you can forget there is a world outside yourself / Where the trees keep growing and the cars keep moving," they sing breathlessly on "The Trees Keep Growing." The subject matter might seem ordinary--themes like optimism ("The New Year"), self-doubt ("How You Remember"), and lost love ("While I'm Still Young") figure prominently--but the dense, dark delivery is anything but. Moving at an unfeasibly languid pace and not once breaking the otherworldly spell with abrasive edges, songs like "Home" and "We Exchanged Words" go down like slow-melting lozenges for the heart. --Aidin Vaziri

Format: Audio CD
While everyone is listening to Moby, one of the artists that he (Richard Melville Hall) puts on the stereo is Athens, Georgia experimental/chill/twee duo Azure Ray. They co-wrote and performed track 4, Great Escape, on Moby's 18, invited into a coterie along with Sinead O'Connor, Angie Stone, and MC Lyte -- Moby's other collaborators for his first LP in three years.
    A month ago Azure Ray (multi-instrumentalist/vocalist Orenda Fink and keyboards player/vocalist Maria Taylor, both also in Now It's Overhead and previously in Little Red Rocket and Bright Eyes) released for the US their second full-length, Burn And Shiver, on Athens indie label Warm Electronic Recordings. It follows their November EP, out since January on Saddle Creek, and their debut, self-titled full length, released January 2001 on Warm.
Azure Ray make heavy-duty introspective dream music, boldly minimalist and anti-pop, quiet nearly to the point of disappearing into silence. In moments the new album's melodies and emotional colors touch the transcendency of Glasgow's Adventures In Stereo, who, like Azure Ray, make magic of multi-tracked, reverberant female vocals and elemental, repetitive themes.
Floating over synthetic bells, hints of percussion, strings, and acoustic guitar, Fink's and Taylor's lyrics hang in the air almost indecently personal (It's funny how you can forget there's a world outside yourself/ Where the one who loves you keeps on living/ Without you there). The album's an open diary on a bed illuminated by a shaft of light from the hall... you walk up to it quietly, hesitate, then pick it up. It's OK... she left it there... you know she trusts you and wants you to read it.
