Family Band – Grace & Lies (2012) – Review

Review: Family Band is made up of visual artist Kim Krans and her husband metal guitarist Johnny Ollsin. Their debut album Grace & Lies has a very folky/dreamy and dramatic tone. It is pop music that strikes to the bone (or soul) with its bleak yet enchanting sound. The album is drenched in moodiness and somber wallowing. It evokes sort of a sadness in the listener, as the mind wanders to the darkness. But, Krans’s rich voice guides the listener through. It is a fantastic album that seems to haunt the listener each time. It is well worth checking out. 4/5

1)      Night Song
