Editorial Reviews

Milla Sunde and Marlow Bevan are The Green Children, a musical duo whose songs blend ethereal pop with post-modern dance beats. The two European-born artists and songwriters met while attending the Liverpool Institute of the Performing Arts, an English university co-founded by Sir Paul McCartney. Their first album, Encounter, is set for worldwide release on Los Angeles-based Spinside Records in October 2010, and distributed by ADA and ADA Global. The first single "Dragons" has been remixed by the likes of Paul Oakenfold and Digital Dog

5.0 out of 5 stars Encounter The Green Children October 12, 2010
Format:MP3 Music
In the barren wasteland of destructive, immoral music, The Green Children lash out with their magical, musical scythe, clearing the Katy Perry-Ke$ha-Lady Gaga-cult of trash bubblegum pop with a vengeance. From the opening song, Encounter, to the unplugged version of Hear Me Now, the lyrics, melodies, and imaginative twists on a tired and worn out genre rejuvenate and exploit the majesty of pure pop precision. What this English duo import is far greater than anything heard in ages- folk explosions relevant to Chaucer and Tolkien's finest masterpieces. And yet, while being relevant and literary, neither Milla nor Marlow becoming too brooding or introspective in their sound to have fun. Not since Nirvana released Nevermind has an album mattered so much to the music industry. This is in no way a comparison of their style to The Green Children's. But the impact, the dissociation lyrically from the pop scene of today, it is in this manner that Encounter becomes like Nevermind. Hope rests heavily on a pair of shoulders, and like two green children wandered into Woolpit, England, creating a legend pressing in hearts and minds still today, so, too, have The Green Children imprinted their mark. Now let the world only pray this group is successful. Pop may still have a future, and they are called The Green Children.

5.0 out of 5 stars Ethereal Pop October 13, 2010
By Kah628
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I first heard of the green children from Youtube. Somehow they started sending me their videos to preview and I instantly fell in love. Milla's voice is amazing and probably one of the best I've heard in a long time. It's a shame that American radio cannot embrace this type of music because I know some people would be wild about it. I love the mellowness of each song and the beats are fitting of today's pop standards but with a twist. Their music is just so original. It's catchy and they also have a great message behind what they do. Support them and buy the album you won't be disappointed!

5.0 out of 5 stars Can't wait for their next album! December 16, 2011
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I don't usually write reviews for my purchases at Amazon, but for this one I felt moved to do so. Like so many others here, I was introduced to the Green Children through a Facebook ad. Ordinarily, I don't put much stock in Facebook's recommendation, but this time, I decided to check out the Green Children, and I'm so glad I did!

First of all, a disclaimer: if you have looked up this band expecting them to sound like Enya, Loreena McKennitt, or Sarah McLachlan, you will be disappointed. Facebook advertises this duo as being like all of the above. Although I hear influences from Enya and Sarah McLachlan in the music of the Green Children, their style is very different. That having been said, if you can get past Facebook's ads and open your mind and ears to appreciate the Green Children for what they are, then you just may find their first album, Encounter, as enchanting as I have.

I'll admit that I'm completely addicted to their music. They are billed as an electro/pop band, and I suppose their music does fall under this category, but to me, their music is so much more. Where other electro/pop artists sing about sex, drugs, and themselves, the Green Children use their music to address important social issues. And anyone who has read even a little bit about Milla and Marlow should not be surprised by this focus, since the two of them give generously to help out those who are less fortunate. I've never encountered another band in this genre of music with such uplifting, stirring, and inspiring music.

I love almost all of their songs on this album, but some of their best are

-Encounter, which tells the story of the Green Children, from whom they got their name.

-Black Magic, probably their most sexual song, though done in a very tasteful way.

4.0 out of 5 stars Enchanting December 23, 2010
Format:Audio CD
I first heard of The Green Children on Myspace earlier this year. I really liked the duo's brand of dance/pop. I recently got a chance to pick up a copy of their debut album Encounter. The Green Children's music quickly reminded me of some of my favorite ambient/dance/pop groups like Delerium and Conjure One. Milla Sunde sounds like some of vocalists that Delerium and C1 uses on their albums. She shares that same ethereal quality. The lyrics are a little hokey with its Lord of the Rings type themes but I can forgive the group for that since proceeds of the cd goes to their foundation which helps the poor and impoverished. Overall Encounter is a pleasant album to relax to on a cold winter's night.

5.0 out of 5 stars Loved it! November 10, 2011
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I can't believe it took me so long to discover this band!

More often then not, the recommendations Amazon gives me are not usually my cup of tea. Naturally, I'm reluctant to buy an album just because Amazon linked it to another purchase I made. However, I listened to the samples of "Encounter" and was hooked! Milla has an amazing voice!

This record deserves to be judged on its own merits instead of compared to other artists. I will say, being a fan of shoegazer and nu-gaze music, that those of like taste will most likely enjoy this album. My favorite songs are "Encounter", "Dragons", "Black Magic", and "Skies on Fire".

Needless to say, this is one recommendation I am very satisfied with. Glad I took the chance.

Can't wait for the next record!
