Drawing a variety of timeless sensibilities, it is the title selection which leads the release off. Captivating from the start, it's perfectly sculpted beats are warm and powerful, anchoring what is a fluid, key changing foundation. Crafted with precision and care, layers of tantalizing percussion are blanketed with kaleidoscopic arps and tepid swells. A symphonic top line rounds off the musical narrative quite nicely, leading to a break with indistinct vocal choirs and a quiet calm which perfectly sets up a gorgeous finale.
The journey continues with the thoughtful moods of 'Faith'. Nicely tied to the ethos of the EP, Damiana marries a variety of classical concepts with meditative rhythms and tranquil textures. It's a transcendent and highly emotive storyboard, culminating with a maze of arpeggiated keys and symphonic swells, the combination of which makes for a hugely memorable conclusion.
The release is capped off in fine fashion with the reflective vibes of 'Never'. Immediately compelling, it's deliberate bass tones and broken beats lay the foundation for meandering arp fragments, ghostly vocal wails and a hugely emotive lead line. Its effortless mood grows subtly, as tasteful modulation and placid pads add an impassioned slant to what is already a magical storyboard. Compelling work from Damiana, which rounds out a collection of music that makes her an artist to watch going forward. Highly recommended.
