Editorial Reviews

Mirel Wagner is a 23 year old singer/songwriter, born in Ethiopia and raised in Espoo, Finland. Since age 16 she's writing gloomy Blues and Folk songs, stripped down to the bone. It's just about her airy but rough voice and a minimalistic guitar picking. There's not much you can hear on this debut. It's an "empty" record - in the best sense: a stoically picked, almost trance-inducing acoustic guitar, a voice you wouldn't expect to hear from a 23 year old and songs, which mostly avoid classic song structure (rather "lonely prayers in expressionistic language" Spex). Everything is stripped to the bone and maintains a beautiful, strangely fragile tension, even more so during her live performances. Equally consistent, as the ghostly mood floats through her album, her lyrics deal with really dark themes ... necromancy, love, death and the devil. These are not happy songs.

4.0 out of 5 stars Haunting and Beautiful March 27, 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Mirel Wagner's voice is like a match striking in the dark - subtle, bright, and sad. It's hard to avoid getting sucked into her melancholy world. Her guitar playing is reminiscent of the best gloomy folk singers from the 90s coffee shop heyday.
