Imagine, you're on your way home on a rainy day in the middle of a city, getting lost in the hectic bustle of people and noise. You are alone in a crowd, invisible, trying to escape your own insignificance ... A journey home like this is not for the faint-hearted, and Agnes Milewski together with her band A Mile Of Sky capture beautifully that feeling of longing for home.
The song "Home" offers a dramatic entry to this new EP, introducing the listener into a world full of lyrical metaphors and musical playfulness.
The "Test Case Song" is an ironic statement about the entertainment industry, folky and edgy, with a rousing chorus. Agnes's and Mia's harmony vocals create those goose bump moments that will keep you hooked.
Folky, with a good dose of mysticism, the next piece is "Weile, Weile, Waile," an Irish (children's) song to which Agnes rearranged the music, and the band added it's own dark and whimsical note.
It's the rather chilling story of a woman who lives alone in a forest and commits a murder, a unique lullabye that will send shivers down your spine.
The record ends with the epic "Raven", a slowly building, deliciously wicked and sprawling piece.
As a consistently organic-analogue work, which only features classical instruments, this record presents the craftsmanship and integrity of Milewski and her band A Mile of Sky.
