EDITORS’ NOTES

The singer/songwriter duo of Stephanie Lauren and Kyle Monroe gives Quiet Frame; Wild Light an otherworldly glow, blending sleek Britpop with organic folk-rock. The prevailing mood is optimistic with a bittersweet tinge, suggestive of childhood longings and solitary walks in the forest. Lauren’s crystalline vocals fuse the wistful pang of The Cranberries’ Dolores O’Riordan with the dreamily introspective quality of Beth Orton. Monroe’s production favors pristine acoustic guitars, ‘60s-slanted keyboard textures, and buoyant drum lines, with strings and horns sparingly added. The melodies of Quiet Frame; Wild Light are atmospheric yet well-defined, framing lyrics that blur the lines between earthly affection and spiritual desire. Tracks like “We Are Alive,” “Seven Seas," and “On Wings” are celebrations of ordinary existence infused with mystic radiance. “I Am a Lark” revels in pastoral imagery, while “You” is a heartfelt love song accented with cello and bells. “Brother in the Morning Light” is a shimmering family snapshot with a hint of mystery at its core. Three live tracks wrap up this beguiling, finely crafted first effort.
