Mozart’s Sister – Field of Love

Thursday 16th, March 2017 / 22:05
By Colin Gallant

Arbutus Records

At just eight songs and 33 minutes in length, Field of Love by Mozart’s Sister feels like a sugar high at the moment just before the crash. Her brand of electronic pop is at times nestled between the rawness of early Grimes and dizzingly saccharine qualities of the best PC Music releases.

Many of the record’s best moments showcase hyperactive melody and energy. “Eternally Girl” kicks things off with a few coos before belting into chipmunk synth and Caila Thompson-Hannant belting “I could be the one that you love.” In the middle there’s “Moment to Moment,” a thematically appropriate tune for a work when earworms collide, overlap and sometimes fade before you can grasp onto them fully.

It might’ve all become a bit too much to take in if it weren’t for moments like “Angel,” where the pace cools down and Thompson-Hannant’s voice is the central focus. Her range stretches from pained falsetto to Celine-esque diva bursts. Fittingly, Field of Love peppers earnest love songs with just enough camp to be both emotionally compelling while yielding a few bemused grins from the listener.
