Domini Forster leads you by the hand through the dusk-lit corridors of her intricate song-stories, each scene as intimate and lovelorn as tea-stained lace. There, hovering deftly in the breathless spaces between light and dark, is Raven: the remarkably assured debut album from one of Melbourne’s brightest new voices in modern folk.
Steeped in melody, the album’s first single ‘Then You Stop’ is surprisingly sanguine despite broaching darker themes. Angelic coos of backing vocals dip and sway above an acoustic guitar. Clear and fragile chimes of upright piano form, like drops of condensation on a window-pane. Strings swell with orchestral drum rolls, driving the track as it opens into an joyful indie-pop outro, with Forster declaring, arms outstretched, “I wish you were here so I could hold you / and tell you the things your mother told you...”
