Toronto singer songwriter Clara Engel has the voice of a dark angel.- While the plaintive melodies of each song vibrates in the deep air, her resonant vocal sprawls with sorrow and darkend lyrics, which is more poetic story telling than just a meaningless word. Her latest release, Lovebird's Throat epitomizes the profound feelings behind her stories. Four tracks transmit intense emotion as the song sgradually proceed to the end. No matter what feeling it associates with sorrow, hope, fear, the emotive tale brings the listener to the deepest. You can give a listen to two of the sogns off the EP from her bandcamp site.
Engel is currently working on a new album release which is scheduled to be unleashed in 2013. You can help her fund the album via Kapipal.
to collapse in the fire isn't worth the pain
she'll come and put me together again
every time i cut off your head
you grow another
lovebirds mauled your hand
when you reached into their cage
tell me, what have you learned?
the same fire fuels love and rage
or some other sad cliche
bloody roots of a flowering sky
you can fry my third eye
with your fingers of flame
touch me, and dissolve my mind
blue cascade of sound
a simple bell
the sea's singing bones
your bloodied hand rests still
upon the lovebird's throat
