Herefordshire-based trio Mermaid Kiss have constructed a varied debut album that touches on pop, rock, folk and ambient music. Fronted by singer Evelyn Downing, they have a singer whose pure English vocals has a ring of All About Eve's Julianne Regan about it, in fact the title track could be the group's own version of 'Martha's Harbour'. Supplying the variety are co-songwriter and guitarist Jamie Field and Andrew Garman on bass and keyboards. Satisfyingly, the album's longest tracks are often the best. 'Write My Name In Stars' neatly juxtaposes Downing's quivering vocals with Garman's warm keyboard textures; on 'Blind' and 'Just Like You' the vocals are layered creating an ethereal, melodic and slightly unsettling feel. Where the group fare less well is on the poppier moments like 'Some Days Are Like This' and 'Fated' in which the tunes are just a little too nice and unassuming; Downing faring much better when she is given space to breathe over the slower songs. Proving that Mermaid's Kiss are at their best when they defy pigeon-holing.
