Previously known for her work with electronic duo Mu, Vancouver based CHERRIE LAUREL (Brittany Rand) has launched her solo career with the album A Furnace, A Fire which features the slinky electronica of A Little Noise.
With an ambience that reminds me at times of the much missed (by me) Tristesse de la Lune mixed in with the new-retro electronica sound that Canada does so well, the song blends a wonderful melange of sensuality, danger and dreamy dancefloor nous that gives it a knowing, world weary but ultimately engaging air.
Sharp as a shard of ice, as warm as the midnight sun, A Little Noise manages to be as catchy as it is occasionally unsettling. It gets the feet moving and the brain thinking, the guitar drifting like a sprite over an atmospheric musical landscape.
