Clara Engel Golden Egg

by Walter Price

Someplace between that bewitching space of slumber and the mystical heavens and from the most eclectic mind of multi-faceted, multi-instrumented, and certainly multi-dimensional artist Clara Engel comes the experimentally distinctive LP, “Their Invisible Hands” (2022). A dark and hauntingly beautiful escape into the psyche of a nonconformist who seems to let her soul, in concert with the elements, guide her creativity. Channeling all the whimsy and shadowy memories to fill in the voids of this 13-track experience.

I’m particularly drawn to the poetic and mystical lullaby (of sorts), “Golden Egg”. Engel’s ethereal vocals and softly hypnotic arrangement intertwine innocence and a spiritual offering. Like if it were co-created by s woodland shaman as it leads you into another whelm. Which, in a way, could be my overall synopsis of the entire album.

If you’re looking into a new form of escapism, give Clara Engel’s “Their Invisible Hands” a moment or two. But if time is an issue, get yourself started by giving “Golden Egg” a stream, here at the GTC.
