Merna – Sans [LP]

Merna ( or the artist formerly known as Ayah ) lays bare a graceful and distantly stormy acoustic piece with her new album Sans. Alternating between the stately feel and familiarity of vocal jazz standards and the emotional individuality of a focused (and not-so-angst-ridden) Fiona AppleMerna‘s rising tide vocals are the centerpiece on beautiful numbers like the baroque pop soul tunes that open and close the album  – “Sky Lights” and it’s distant cousin “Sorry Not Sorry”. The kinda quirky art rock composition “Broken Telepone” and the darkened shoreline soaring ballad “The Exception” also stand as album triumphs.
