Imagine yourself floating in a pleasant and ever changing space of visualized musical and lyrical impressions, taking you to new and unexpected mental sceneries and emotional places. You're caught in a blackish blue whirlwind of aggressive energy, you float further and notice the pinkish sugarcane softness which is the other end of the scale of Maria Franz' vocal repertoire. Shifting soundscapes and beautiful, secretive and interesting melodies keep surprising you and you catch yourself turning your head from side to side trying not to miss the quirky, bold and playful details in instrument handling, composition, dynamics, pace and rhythm. Then the frisky exploration of genres and electronic possibilities adds sparks to the experience, while the lyrics, honest, poetic and personal, add depth. It's a hell of a ride, I tell you.
