ArtistRack reviews ‘Stars Apart’ by Laura Marie:
Laura Marie’s songwriting on these compositions contain introspective elements that emit powerful transfigurations of eternal harmonies levitating contemporary folk music to the perpetual scenery.
The instrumentals provide a tranquil feel to the music but provide a sense of cinematic folk that is used to sedate the audience with relaxing bliss. The optimistic conceptualizations of her music are contrasted with a subtle weariness riding underneath in a sub context of tenor and genuineness. The emotions resonate from the heart with the cognition emitting from her creative mind into one cohesive form of self-expression through several competing instruments.
Furthermore, some of these tracks may be inaccessible audible to the superficial listeners as the time and dedication that went into the songwriting is both complicatedly progressive and surreal. In other words, the artist’s intention was to cultivate something of exquisiteness through the music that came into fruition towards from the album’s opening remarks to its fateful conclusion. The tonal switches in melodies were apparent and projected into evocative landscapes through the mystical reverberated motion of frequency distribution. Paired with song structural synchronization the songwriting is simply unmatched within this genre.
Laura Marie has set herself “Stars Apart” on this vivid LP and will continue to do so with that unparalleled musical touch that artists hanker for.
