Editors’ Notes

Science for Girls auteur Darren Solomon has taken a long, circuitous route to his debut album. As a 19-year-old NYU student, he was summoned to tour with Ray Charles for two years, spent four years backing Barry Manilow (whose “Sweet Life” is featured here in technologically advanced form), and then began writing and producing scores for over 100 television commercials. Left to his own creative devices, Solomon’s debut album, courtesy of spacy textures and processed beats, falls under the electronica umbrella, circa 2008. Tracks such as “You’ll Never Know” and “Sonnet 96” expand into the manipulated pop terrain of Moby and Prefab Sprout, but for all the special effects — and even the vocals get treated here — strict attention is applied to the songwriting that evinces a strong emotional connection with its floating, ominous tones and an end-of-the-world desolation. Soulful, tinted with hints of Brazilian pop, polished and lush yet sparse and minimalist in its sense of time and space, Science for Girls is the sound of an industry professional letting loose on his wilder pop impulses.

Customer Reviews

Science For Girls has me feeling good

I first heard “14 Days” on KCRW while flying down a freeway in LA. Brought me nearly to a halt. That Bronwen Exter voice had me flooded with so much beautiful emotion that I nearly collapsed through tears. – I was in love, I could no longer drive my car, I needed to pull over and just melt. So sweet and beautiful and so…everything good to my soul. Needless to say, I had to have the album. So I got Science for Girls, and wow, what a great album to take in. Every song on it makes me feel connected to love and life and hope and travel and adventure and friends and relationships. Jean Rohe comes in on track 4 with some sexy that reminds me a little of Sade. Gotta love it. On the fifth track lies waiting, “Australia”. It is so nicely done, and so fun, and the voice of Paul Brill makes that song so perfect that I cannot imagine it being done again by anyone else. That song's free and easy lyrics celebrate everything Australian with a terrific finish of Chorus and Verse swinging hand and hand to the end. Makes me want to jump on the next plane. Darren Solomon has put together a beautiful blend of women that make up the Science of Girls singers to back that song and others. I love his lyrics and his sense of youth and good adventure. He has also done a wonderful job of writing and producing a gem that I am glad to have. I am sure we will hear more from these talented vocalists and musicians he brought together for this project and I eagerly look forward to listening to their music in the future.

Engaging Lyrical Downtempo.

This album has a great flow of laid back and pensive downtempo tracks layered with lyrics that fit the mood while walking the line between poignant and playful. The mixes on each track are engaging in their tonal variety and rhythmic diversity. The saturated and ambient nature of the album is just subtle enough to keep your ears focused on what's going on in the foreground. The rotating lineup of vocalists gives the album a nice forward thrust. Enjoy!

Exceptional musical geniuses.

I guarantee going through this album, you will be sure to find some songs you like. This music really is outstanding. My favorites include "You'll Never Know", "14 Days", and "Australia".
