Mozart’s Sister has always hit her stride during emotional peaks. It’s fitting then that the Montreal artist’s newest album, her second, moves through the soaring highs and stomach-wrenching disappointments of a new relationship. It’s wholly consistent, entirely repeatable and infinitely relatable.
“Eternally Girl” moves in at the upper end its synth register, declaring that its narrator perhaps isn’t as grown up as her age would suggest. The middle section, especially though “Moment 2 Moment” and “Angel,” is the cotton candy-flavoured, but in-hindsight naive, sensations of a possibility filled new romance: belted vocals, airy synths, at infectious paces. But the most interesting moment is right at the end, as “Baroque Baby,” in slightly deeper, more grounded tones, describes the short-lived partnership falling flat on its face.
You’ve probably felt it all, or at least something like it. Field of Love is the album your heart would make if you didn’t let your brain talk you down.
Field of Love is available now from Bandcamp.
