Organ Art review
A London based song and improvisation group with their rather fine debut album. Now describing this using mere words is not going to be as easy as describing most things we get here is. Improvisation yes, but the songs seem to have some kind of logical structure, a frame holding things in place. She has the finest of voices, slightly witchy in a positively folky rather English kind of way – actually she appears to be a now London based Irish girl who first started performing her songs in Dublin in the late 90’s.
Laura Hyland is her name and what a beautifully intriguing voice she has – strong, dark, rich... The band are all clearly accomplished musicians, so much improvisation seems to be an excuse masquerading as art made by those who can’t actually play ‘properly’. Winterlands is an extremely soothing album, a rather different album, an intriguing album that’s enjoyably experimental. Mysteriously inviting and an almost Siren like vibrancy, a very different album, an easy album to spend time with, to enjoy, a slice or two of intriguing beauty that’s well worth your time.
