Of Time, Part II

by Walter Price

 

San Francisco’s Dark-Pop duo New Spell (Leanne Kelly and Jacob Frautschi) are set to drop their long-awaited EP, ‘Of Time, Part II’, Septemeber 21, 2018. With two singles, “You Win” and “Of Time”, already available now on Bandcamp.

The opening track, “You Win”, is a sprawling dreamscape exploring the inner turmoil before and after decisions made or perhaps knowing the subsequent truths won’t set you free. With Hints of Book of Love, this track is an airy and shadowy lullaby.

It’s all in my mind. I’m so tired of fighting/trying.
And so, lies, you win.
And I’m so far from sleep. The truth cut you deep.
And so, lies, you win.

Now I can barely see the sea
So wrap your arms around me

“Of Time”, as reviewed by me in June of this year, ” It may be no surprise to fans of New Spell that this new track is a stunning showcase of Kelly’s vocal delivery. Furthermore, without hesitation, her best to date. Dark, delicate, and addictive.”

Watching waiting lines,
so scared of losing time.
To dream, to love, to lose,
to make it real, to choose.

The years start speeding by
to you this precious life.
In a vast sea of stars
this brief moments is ours.

Perfect for fans of CHVRCHES, Portishead, Black Honey.
