Melanie Oxley and Chris Abrahams - Blood Oranges


The 5th and most wonderful studio album from 2 of
Australians most consistently hard working, solid
musician/vocalists. What a combination, you can
read a review from the age here

Blood Oranges is the fifth release for the luminous
partnership of
Melanie Oxley & Chris Abrahams.
Offering a distinct change in direction,
especially
from their acoustic studio album Jerusalem Bay
released
four years ago. Blood Oranges is more in
the melodic pop vein of their
earlier records such
as Welcome to Violet & Resisting Calm.

Blood Oranges is possibly the most studio savvy
album the pair has
produced and from the filter
swept, reggae tinged opener "Get Me So Far"
to the
last track, the ominous "Time Empty Away,"
the production is
inventive. Melanie's smoky vocals
together with Chris's distinctive
keyboard etchings
create the sparse yet brutally intense music that
is so
unique to this partnership.
Coloured by a strange,
at times dark playfulness, Blood Oranges is
dotted
throughout with classic sounding songs drawn from
a number
of pop influences. The twelve new songs are
lyrically thoughtful,
deceptively simple and gently twist
their way through the melodic
and the irrational.
