WE REVIEW THE NEW ALBUM FROM MARY KNOBLOCK – HALO

In the realm of music, there are those who create and those who transcend. Mary Knoblock plants her flag in the latter camp with her latest offering, “Halo.” Hailing from the misty streets of Portland, Oregon, Knoblock is a sonic architect, crafting intricate soundscapes that beckon listeners into her world of euphoric alternative and dark-pop realms.

The journey begins with the titular track, “Halo,” a celestial opener that sets the stage for the ethereal experience that follows. It’s as if Knoblock is guiding us through the gates of heaven with her haunting melodies and intricate arrangements.

“Heaven’s Bride” takes us deeper into the labyrinth of Knoblock’s mind, where swirling synths and mesmerizing vocals intertwine to create a sonic tapestry unlike anything we’ve heard before. It’s a testament to her ability to seamlessly blend electronic elements with neo-classical sensibilities.

As we delve further into the album, tracks like “Chrome” and “Dance Card June” showcase Knoblock’s versatility as an artist. From pulsating beats to haunting melodies, she effortlessly navigates between genres, leaving us in a state of awe and wonder.

But it’s not all introspection and melancholy; tracks like “Lucky” and “Today” inject a sense of euphoria into the mix, reminding us that even in the darkest moments, there is light to be found.

And then there’s “Saints Prayer” and “Dreamer,” where Knoblock’s cinematic vision truly comes to life. It’s as if we’re wandering through the streets of Portland at dusk, each note painting a vivid picture in our minds.

But perhaps the most striking aspect of “Halo” is Knoblock’s commitment to uplifting women in music. In an industry dominated by male voices, she stands as a beacon of hope, proving that talent knows no gender.

In conclusion, Mary Knoblock’s “Halo” is a transcendental experience that defies categorisation. From its melodies to its sonic flavours, it’s a testament to the power of music to move, inspire, and uplift. So, dear reader, immerse yourself in the sonic world of Mary Knoblock.
