Album Release: ‘Russian Doll’ is out!

Preamble

Well Moonling’s it’s finally here. Marie Keane has released her inaugural album ‘Russian Doll,’ and it is all kinds of exquisite. The lovely Lady herself has given me permission to review the album, so naturally, I had to share my thoughts with you. I will link all her

details below. However, if you are so ready to purchase the album already you can get that here. You know how much I love music and supporting artists, especially Irish artists are a big deal for me.

Background

If you remember I interviewed Marie last November and that interview can be found here. She gave us some insight into what it’s like being an Irish musician, the music scene in her city and of course the creative process behind the making of ‘Russian Doll,‘ the album. I was so excited and couldn’t wait for it to come out. She has already released a music video for the song ‘Cranes,’ which is embedded below.

Album, ‘Russian Doll.’

So talk about the album already Jaycee! Alright, so it’s 13 tracks of genre-hopping goodness. It kicks off with “Tree of doors,” which for me sounds like Marie is trying to connect not only with nature but the wisdom of the past.

“Where worship danced around its face, now lifeless towers takes its place.” – Tree Of Doors

Have we forgotten our ancestor’s reverence to nature? Her deep melodies are transfigured with modern sounds mixed with a Celtic essence. She continues to use her love of music to her advantage when it comes to writing love songs, or even lover scorned songs. She deals out her thoughts about love and attraction in, “Limerance,” and “In the firing line.” Looking around I remind myself that I’m not in fact in a blues café on Frenchmen Street.

The force between us could pen a thousand tales, draw tears from many lovers.” – The Firing Line

 

Then taking on the story of forfeited faith which is commonplace in modern Ireland, a stand out track for me was the stunning, “Stained glass windows.” We are treated to an example of her voice within its classical range. The song is a mix of classical piano and Celticism in a gothic church. She visits this theme in “Faith,” while, “We all can change,” incorporates both her style and a gospel motif. “Faith,” for me could easily be the next Bond theme.

I found my way, but I lost my faith… I grieve my removal… No longer do I carry the sins… I bare all my worship to open ground.” – Stained Glass Windows

The social rock/pop commentary of “Theatre of the mind,” and “Addiction,” mixed with the ethereal sounds of “The Homecoming,” makes this album a success for me. I implore you to investigate. Listen to the video below. Visit her website. Tell her I sent you, she’s lovely. I’m heading to the launch party on Sunday, and I’ll do my best to get some exclusive footage. Until then, thanks for reading.
