MA is vocalist Victoria White and composer / programmer / editor / arranger Drew Crawford. Weaving together a range of string, drum, sax and guitar samples with Victoria’s pure vocals, the album takes you on a journey through playful pop, whimsical narrative, internal reflection and the melancholy.
When we first listened to the tracks, we couldn’t help but be reminded of Beth Gibbons’ sweet-yet-serious vocals on top of the sampled backing in Portishead’s classic album: Dummy. White’s vocals have that beautiful quality of a real mix of purity and power, and she is well matched with the atmospheric, textured, electro-acoustic arrangements of Crawford.
We loved the down-tempo honesty of this album; this is dimly-lit room, martini-in-hand sounds at their best. Sink back into your seat and enjoy.
