In Miniature

A review written for the Folk & Acoustic Music Exchange

In miniature is a delightful folk duo featuring acoustic rhythm guitar and clean electric on lead. Witty lyrics and tight harmonies make this a beautiful, five song EP. Gone is the song of "a locksmith with only one key," a "poet with only one line." This sets the stage for more amazing singer/songwriter word crafting.

The next track Lonestar Souvenir, has a mysterious and bluesy feel to it. "Origami heart lying crumpled on the bar," the ladies sing, creating poetic images against soulful musical delivery. Many of the songs, like Lonestar Souvenir, have a vaguely country-western feel to them. Nothing At All features an interesting chord progression and strange, haunting melody that segues into a slow ominous chorus.

Driving Blind is another song that somehow manages to be both upbeat and dark. This song is one of the few with extended instrumental section, including guitars, bass and what sounds like a xylophone or marimba. Altogether, the five song EP is enough to whet interest in future releases from the group.

Track List:

  • Gone
  • Lonestar Souvenir
  • You Know The Way
  • Nothing At All
  • Driving Blind
