LORE has finally arrived with her first solo album,"MY SOUL SPEAKS". A collection of sensual, yet powerful vocal performances coincide with lush production and advance sound design. This is dark electronic pop with crossover potential to rock, trip-hop, ambient, industrial, electro and darkwave - all with a beautiful and emotional sensibility.
Trip-Hop put her on the map with the song, "My Soul Speaks." Later, LORE is featured with "London After Midnight" performing authentic Hebrew vocals on "Blessing." Returning the gesture, Sean Brennan shines on "Haunting" - a sensual yet hard edge fantasy-like extravaganza that could easily find itself the theme song of a spooky James Bond movie. Overall, the album's lyrics reflect lessons in love, growth and spiritual revelation. From the guitar heavy "Love Has Gone" defining what bad-ass sounds like to the electronic pop song "Flow" - these songs will captivate the listener with intensity. "Angel" takes you on a hauntingly beautiful journey. "Why Do I" gives the feeling of a 1940's smoky, avant-garde jazz lounge while "Sink" is a burlesque dancers dream and the ambient soundscape of "Release" won't leave a dry eye.
Musical contributions include: Mark Blasquez, a sound wizard with credits including (NIN, Tweaker, Berlin, Ministry); Julian Beeston, a "Nitzer Ebb" industrial pioneer; seasoned mixer/engineer, John X. Volaitis (David Bowie, Marilyn Manson); Kyle Keiderling, a bass god from the original lineup of "Bang Tango” and Victor J. Palagano, III - an indie film-score composer. LORE has collaborated with a wealth of impressive talent!
The gift of a bonus CD includes "not your typical" remixes. The 8 panel, double CD-digipak is bathed in a sea of warm burgundy and sensual photos. The 16 page lyrical booklet tours rooms with an antique flair of burnt wallpaper and velvet all entwining hand drawn vines. Electric eyes clearly displayed as windows to a songstress' soul dominate the digipak cover rounding the theme, "My Soul Speaks".
