8/10 Jack Customer review, 5th February 2015
Azure Ray's Maria Taylor and Orenda Fink are known for their delicate, almost fragile vocal harmonies coupled with very introspective perspectives, set in melancholy arrangements of piano, acoustic guitar, cello, and strings. As Above, So Below, despite its 6-song, 23-minute length, shatters the mould. The dream vocals remain, but the acoustic bed has been tossed to the curb. Instead, the duo collaborated with Fink's husband Todd, of the electronic band The Faint. Deep reverb, synth oscillations, echoed drums, ominous bass throbs, ghostly tinkles, and things that go bump in the night are all anchored by the women's soothing vocal constancy, making for a fascinating dark side ride.
