Welcome to Violet



Blood Oranges is the fifth release for the luminous partnership of Melanie Oxley & Chris Abrahams. Offering a distinct change in direction, especially from their acoustic studio album Jerusalem Bay released four years ago. Blood Oranges is more in the melodic pop vein of their earlier records such as Welcome to Violet & Resisting Calm.

Blood Oranges is possibly the most studio savvy album the pair has produced and from the filter swept, reggae tinged opener "Get Me So Far" to the last track, the ominous "Time Empty Away," the production is inventive. Melanie's smoky vocals together with Chris's distinctive keyboard etchings create the sparse yet brutally intense music that is so unique to this partnership.

Coloured by a strange, at times dark playfulness, Blood Oranges is dotted throughout with classic sounding songs drawn from a number of pop influences. The twelve new songs are lyrically thoughtful, deceptively simple and gently twist their way through the melodic and the irrational.

........lyrics are often bleak, ....not a despairing bleakness but one bolstered by stocism, wit, hope and a love of beauty..the words are borne on winning melodies...Oxley's voice creates......more
