Mozart’s Sister

Mozart’s Sister – Field of Love

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.

Mozart’s Sister – Angel

On the surface, it’s about a boy: an out-of-reach image of perfection. But this new song from Montreal‘s Mozart Sister, part of her first release since 2014’s Enjoy, is really more about the descending, slurpy synth gurgle that punctuates the choral harmonies and sparse percussion. It reads as a reflection on how there’s always hidden letdowns behind any veneer of perfection, but it’s also the kind of weird, creative and wonderful song we’ve come to expect from the solo artist.

It’s part of a two-song cassette out now on Arbutus. The second song, the charming “Eternally Girl,” comes with its own video.

MP3: Mozart’s Sister x Trust

mozarts-sister

We’re shuddering with anticipation for the release of the debut album from Montreal favourite Mozart’s Sister (next month!!), but until then we’ll be listening to her excellent remix of Trust‘s “Rescue, Mister“. She replaced the thumping bass with a hectic collection of top-end sounds, but the real power of this is the updated vocals, a combination of both artists’ voices.
