Many words could be used, but sometimes less is more. Robyn states that ‘there are many challenges we all face and some that are still being faced´. For her, her health this year has pushed and pulled her like no other and she hopes that this record will bring hope to those who are facing their battles and inner demons.

Robyn has been slaying her scene for some time now, being a frontwoman and a true meal machine. Following the release of her previous EP, this  ‘what if’  vitality she brings to light is lovely. The first track has this dark serpentine ambiance, a building off the title premonition. Something massive is on its way, and we feel the heat. But the twist is when apparitions begin. There is this sense of empowering certainty as it opens, but where it lets you drift is the true sparkle. Delicate and boundless. It makes one feel as if you’re among the stars, floating, without thought. It rises one final time with her solo, fierce and uplifting, before fading into an echo.

Short stories are gems. Particularly at today’s pace, but one could enjoy getting lost in this to and fro flow.
 
Rating: 7.5/10
