This final installment of an electronica-cum-ambient trilogy by Australian-born, briefly New York-based and current resident in Brighton, doesn't require knowledge of the first two parts.
This dark, emotionally cool and sometimes glacially romantic album is about love, reconciliation and closure, and – given that over-arching theme – it floats easily into the consciousness courtesy of elements from trip-hop, aural soundscapes, somewhat gloomy and Gothic electronica (the skeletal Forest) and her ethereal singing which is suspended somewhere in a slightly echoed mid-distance.
Low piano chords, lyrics loaded with personal symbolism and weight (they are all at bandcamp) and a real sense of pared-back immediacy make for quite a seductive, thoughtful and transporting album.
Don't be in a hurry, this album isn't.
