about

There is a pristine clarity to Narcissus that showers its listener with an almost crystalline coolness; a spring rain sparkling in the post-winter sunlight. Aubrey Rachel Violet Bramble’s vocals shimmer with a new, uncomplicated presence – gone are the layers-upon-layers of vocals-as-instrument; in their place a confident, more straightforward soprano emerges, still milky smooth but mature, grown-up. Multi-instrumentalist Gregg Alexander Joseph Neville possesses an editorial deftness in his arrangements, spinning a web of smartly paired sounds that is neither too cluttered nor too sparse, seducing his listener with a crisp simplicity.

Narcissus is at its core a study of infatuation, both lyrically and sonically, and the tingling exhilaration that accompanies falling in love. Here is an analysis of desire and how it affects us on the deepest personal levels. The emotions are often fickle, the heart races, impulse is favored over pragmatism, we live inside our own fantasies.
