Review: Edie Carey – The Veil

The first thing that strikes me about Edie Carey’s eighth studio album is the lovely tone of Carey’s voice which has never sounded better.

The opening track is hauntingly beautiful, boasting a high end production and lyrics that captivate. ‘I’ve been traveling all this time like I had a force field around me/Then for a moment we were flying and the floor became the ceiling’. Another highlight is the song ‘Rise’ which sees Carey team up with Rose Cousins. It has a really good arrangement and a kick to it in the chorus, it also shows Carey’s powerful side to her vocals.

The album ends with ‘You’re Free’, a stripped back, acoustic number and though it is filled with sadness, it seeks to find solace in moving on. It is a soothing end to a brilliant record. Life and all it’s trials and tribulations permeate from this album but in the most beautiful and delicate way.
