Music Review: One Cell In the Sea

A Fine Frenzy

Boasting influences from Ella Fitzgerald to Bright Eyes, Alison Sudol - aka A Fine Frenzy - is an exciting new singer-songwriter from Seattle. Self-taught on the piano, the 22-year-old has been causing a stir with her haunting debut album, One Cell In the Sea. A truly unique sound comes from this CD, full of rich strings and piano weaved into some of the most heart-breaking sounds ever recorded. And some of the most catchy. While it sounds very stuffy, A Fine Frenzy manages to keep a pop-sensibility about her music that makes it quite the indy-alt album. And with rich lyrics and a beautiful voice, she entrances listeners with her stories of love lost, sirens and the human condition. A- Key Tracks: Come On, Come Out, The Minnow & the Trout, You Picked Me, Liar, Liar, Lifesize.
