Hide & Seek Behind the Throne

Hide & Seek Behind the Throne
Independent
While songs and conventional rhythms have their place for Halifax’s i see rowboats, it is spirited instrumental interplay that enlivens the listening. Luke Fisher’s violin gets into a scrap with drums and group vocals on “Mine and Strike,” giving as good as it gets. On “Ci Ci,” guitar, viola and melodica beat as one to herald a dialogue between violin and cello. The five players have an acute sense of each other’s capabilities and push each composition into varying degrees of winging it. “In Cars” builds into a Broken Social Scene-like fury of collective energy, precisely emitted. These long strings reveal a vast potential.
