Singer Anna Murphy charms them with her magical voice and her flute, while guitarist Ivo Henzi and drummer Merlin Sutter put down a solid rhythmic basis, bring complex melodies to life. Concept album “The Spell” from 2019 is an absolute gem full of melodious songs with a perfectly balanced mix between light and heavy. The most recent EP “Dance” from 2021 is on par as well, quality-wise. Especially Murphy’s vocals draw attention: with her crystal-clear voice she isn’t all that far off from Anneke van Giersbergen, which is intended as a compliment.
