Like a dancey Enya
Ethereal vocals running over insistent, dancey drums (usually electronic, only occasionally unfortunately macine-y). The overall sound is varied—a touch dark, moody, insistent, though with plenty of more playful moments. (email@example.com)

The constant thread with this album is the energy. The songs vary a lot in flavour, moving from the ethereal to dance to world flavours (sometimes middle eastern, sometimes Celtic, sometimes Indian), the vocals first ethereal, then childlike, then deeper. (firstname.lastname@example.org
