Bathe Your Emotions In The Alluring Light Of allie's 'Moonlust' EP
Canadian singer allie slipped ever so alluringly into our musical consciousness in early 2013 with the kind of charming self-possession that suggested she had that something special. And so it proved, with her fantastic debut EP, 'Strange Creature', seeing her go on to become a favorite among the online electro/neo-soul and progressive r&b tastemaker set. Returning now with her follow up 'Moonlust' EP, allie proves that just as the celestial orb in the EP's title moves the tides, so she will have you awash in the ebb and flow of your emotions.
As always, the idiosyncratically seductive centerpiece of the EP is allie's maturely poised vocal: invoking a dreamy hush that is intuitively brushed with a jazzy insouciance and lullaby-hued sensuality, her sultry phrasing and sensitivity will have you in thrall to the slow-burning emotion and mellifluously absorbing tone of her unique voice. With tracks that lyrically broach the authenticity of identity, self-knowledge and the chasing of dreams, lust's intoxicating reverie and both the chill of final realizations and the promise of new beginnings, allie addresses the complexities of human experience with a knowingly observant insight that is poignantly introspective in its honesty and vulnerability. In conjunction with mellow, luxuriantly musing and lushly ruminative production from Elaquent, Nick Wisdom and Da-P, with 'Moonlust' allie has again reminded that the effortless allure of her wondrously seductive talent remains as potently satisfying for your intellect as it is for your soul.
