"Ethereal electronics that are lush and tranquil with the rich vocals of what could be a mythical siren singing" -CJ, Spongey Monkey Vol #8/9
The band has been described by some top labels, artists, and DJ's, stylistically, as "A mix of 4AD meets the Sundays, and Garbage." The lush and dramatic electronics of Chris Ross meld with the innovative and melodic guitar of Benjamin Fargen to create a hypnotic foundation for vocalist Victoria Lloyd's soaring and passionate vocal presence. The new album is sure to please fans of the 1995 self-titled release, 1998's "Time and the Maiden", as well as the 2001 release of remixes "Time Again".
The new album "Love is Blind" is the fourth full length album from Claire Voyant. The album is scheduled for a September 2002 release on Metropolis Records. This album continues the Northern California trio's 7-year collaboration and takes their dark melodic dream pop style to the present.
Love is Blind is a journey. A sonically personified romance of beauty and warmth adulterated with persistent micro-stabbings of invocation. Portraits of discovery, despair, and potential disintegration of the elusive "love". Why do we have to fill the world with silly love songs? Well, what's wrong with that?
"The mystery of Love is greater than the mystery of Death...." - Oscar Wilde
