"Wonder" by Soap&Skin.

The beauty in Soap&Skin’s Narrow is in it’s simple approach.  It doesn’t try to be anything it’s not, nor does it present itself as something grandiose; it’s the pure and naked elegance of the six quieter tracks that leave me incredibly impressed and swooning.  Vocal harmonies are layered beautifully and turn a track like “Wonder” into a calming and atmospheric lullaby.  The two black sheep, “Deathmental” and “Big Hand Nails Down” are nice contrasts to the rest of the album and allow for interesting pacing in this relatively short album.  Despite the (relatively) abrasive nature of the tracks, they are quite magnificent in their own right.  However, those tracks shouldn’t be all that surprising in the first place considering “Vater” starts off the album with some strong, commanding vocals in its last half.

Check out the track “Wonder” above.  Narrow is out Feb. 13th on [PIAS].
