In the Clear
is a New York City-based band that features former Parisian
Dominique Durand’s seductive vocals against a backdrop
of melodic rock sound that’s sometimes atmospheric
and ethereal, other times pop-centric and techno dance. A
few of the songs, like Tess Don’t Tell and I’ve
Got You Memorized conjure up the pop smarts and sensibilities
of Suzanne Vega at her best.
ten tracks here offer a varied range between light pop
synth and dark brooding shoegazer sounds. In the Clear
is the kind of album that immediately strikes a chord (literarily
and figuratively), and holds up well upon repeated listens.
Durand’s voice is irresistible, and the catchy tunes
on the album are sure to please long-time Ivy fans while
turning the band on to new listeners.
Track: Track 9, “Ocean City Girl”
