“Calling Your Name”
American born, New Zealand-base Amy Tucker West has pulled off the amazing trick of combining Nordic and Celtic traditions with the lush electronica of Enya without sounding old or rehash. A combination of Eivur and CHVRCHES, Parabola West truly sounds like music Elves would listen to. New Zealand’s scenery seems to embue her musics with a true mysticism that so many aim for but rarely achieve. Maybe this is the music of Artemis, wild, furious, enticing, but almost isolation and hands-off, unless invited. Parabola West has invited us into her world. Our only response is to obey.
