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

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.

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!

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.

About the duo:

Almost stumbling upon them by accident, I couldn't have found them at a better time. I've been trying to locate a good pop/electronic group with some class and talent. Traversing Facebook I saw their ad on the right hand side of the page. It was advertised as similar to the popular group Celtic Woman, which I am very fond of. While that was the reason I really clicked on the ad, they have a very unique sound, even if the main singer is from the UK (Celtic Woman is more Irish folk). It does however have a very folk-like feel to it which is where the resemblance comes in. I enjoy the elegance in their videos and their dress. Furthermore, after doing a little research, I am fond of what they do to help communities. They raised a large sum of money to open a hospital for the blind in Bangladesh, the same country where their music video for the song "Hear Me Now" is taken place (filmed originally in 2006). A professor by the name of Muhammad Yunus, who helped The Green Children duo originally open the hospital, recently received the medal of freedom from president Obama himself in honor of all the work he's done overseas in Bangladesh. And if that's not enough to impress you at the accomplishments they've done, this same professor has a hollywood film planned for him in further honor of what he's done. They are also very much so involved with sustainable energy and things to do with nature. They have their own foundation to help those in need, [...]. As taken from their About Us page, "Milla Sunde and Marlow Bevan established The Green Children Foundation to support microcredit, education and healthcare. We believe in promoting positive stories that highlight the solution, not the problem" Their blog is here: [...].
