There’s been a few bands that primarily consist of a guy and a girl. Two of my most recent favorites have been, the Weepies and the Submarines. Needle continue in this great tradition and gives us more of the same wonderful harmonies on top of a wonderful mix of tracks. Be forewarned that this album is so mellow it almost sends me into a trance, each time I hear it. That sounds like I’m saying this is a boring album, I’m not. It’s just the overall sound is so melodic and beautiful, it’s like being seduced by the Sirens.

“It’s No Secret” is the first of 10 tracks and shows the Siren at full effect. I tell you it must be how the male praying mantis must feel before and during his final act, though fortunately here, the music doesn’t go on to bit your head off, so it’s like all of the pleasure with none of the pain. This is one of those albums, that’s very difficult to go through on a track by track basis as it’s very much a collective work, of which there have been a few albums of this kind lately on Indie Launchpad and should really be reviewed as such.

The last track takes a slight up turn and rounds the album off really well, with it’s different sound, thanks to the prominent piano. It’s a fairly short track at just over two minutes, but is a great example of simple melody again with that wonderful voice.

Conclusion : If you want to unwind, there’s not many albums that will do a better job than this one. With beautiful vocals and music to caress and lull, this is sheer magic.
