The Mary Dream
The Mary Dream's debut is charming and innocent-sounding pop. The opening title song is catchy and lilting in a familiar fashion. Elise Bellew's vocals sound gorgeous here. Blake Ryan and Steve Brewster provide a melodic backing. "Liar" sounds like the ethereal bands of the early nineties like the Cranberries for example. "Stay" is seductively beguiling in its attempts to sway a departing lover. "How You Love Me" continues developing the bands layered sound. Bellew's lead is clear and sweet.
This debut shows the band doing what it does best, creating melodic, memorable songs.
