Minor 7th Reviews “Gypsy’s Moonlight Motel”

Minor 7th has reviewed Azalea’s Gypsy’s Moonlight Motel.

Azalea’s super power is their vocals – Mia’s honey sweet soprano and Benjamin’s warm tenor blend perfectly on original songs brimming with hope and love. Their appealing mystical-Americana-meets-pop sound is layered with lots of dynamics from strummed acoustic guitar, percussion, keyboard and more that can swell to a crescendo and then fall to a near whisper, all in one song. It’s even more remarkable when you know that they played all the instruments. “I See the Church” uses vivid images to offer a spiritual message. They sing of perfect love in “Desert Moon.” “Reflections” features a sparkling mandolin against a gentle piano. “Moon’s White Light” is a compelling track that starts with big rock chords and wailing vocals that quickly falls to a calmer feel, then crescendos again and again. ¬© Jamie Anderson

Glowing Review by Hamilton Blues Lovers

The Hamilton Blues Lovers blog had some very nice things to say about Azalea’s most recent release – Gypsy’s Moonlight Motel:

“Hamilton musical duo, Azalea keeps growing with every recording and their latest, Gypsy’s Moonlight Motel proves it. The production is amazing and they’ve created a fabulous melding of pop and roots music.

Their lush vocal harmonies flow through the entire album as the sometimes infectious and always beautiful melodies bolster the sound. It’s a perfect mix of vocals and music that can’t help but effect you emotionally…”
