Favourite album: Black Dresses, Peaceful as Hell
Black Dresses have been influential in making groundbreaking soundscapes and this is just an addition to an amazing discography. Ada Rook and Devi McCallion have enough chemistry between them that this sounds incredibly sincere and very deliberate, but still maintains the organic nature of what makes them incredible. The lyrical content can be unsettling at times, but the instrumentation gives you hope, as a listener, almost as if it is saying, "Life can be hard, but there is light at the end of the tunnel." It is sad that we won’t get another album from them, but I am lucky to have experienced this legendary moment. Long live Black Dresses, long live Ada Rook, and long live Devi McCallion!
