Kirin J Callinan
Kirin J Callinan has a voice all his own on this startling record. Opener "Halo" is an electro rocker with a stunning lead vocal and a sense of displacement. "Come
on USA" asserts 'I cry when I listen to Springsteen'. The song has Callinan give a typically raw vocal performance. "Victoria M" is an over the top epic and strangely
affecting with it. Callinan emotes against an orchestral swell and really nails the tune. "Chardonnay Sean" is a song with a clear sense of drama and some Britpop tendencies
that work well.
As a whole this record moves in a million different but always challenging directions. It's well worth a listen.
