The Telegraph :: New London, Connecticut

Molly Lewiss compositions seem to float into ourears from distant shores. Theyre otherworldly, drawn more fromlandscapes of dream than from anywhere you could find on a map.Lewis is a unique presence in music today. Her trademark whistle,which brings to mind the great Peruvian soprano Yma Sumac, hasgraced recordings of everything from Schumann lieder and Brazilianjazz to Spaghetti Western ballads and noir lounge.

Lewiss collaborations are diverse: La Femme, SbastienTellier and Dr. Dre. Shes performed around the globe, at ShanghaisYuz Museum, the Cannes Film Festival, Mexico Citys Saln LosAngeles, and across the whole of New Zealand. Lewiss 2021 debutEP, The Forgotten Edge, was produced by Tom Brenneck (CharlesBradley, Amy Winehouse). It was a critical success, drawing praisefrom The New York Times and NPR, and landing Lewis a spot on CBSSunday Morning.

Now, Lewis and Brenneck have teamed up again for hersecond EP, Mirage, bringing aboard Brazilian guitarist Rog, as wellas percussionist Gibi Dos Santos and keyboardist Roger Manning.Capacious and atmospheric, Mirage is Lewiss most hypnotic effortyet. Like Edens Island (1970) by eden ahbezwhose Nature Boyis covered in one of Mirages standout momentsthe album is basedon Lewiss visions of an imaginary island. The lush, oceanic texturesof Mirage transport us to the sands of an unknown beachall aloneor in the company weve always dreamt of keeping.
