Oxlip (from the album Wolves! cried the maid available as a self-release)
Much like the music she creates, the flower that Oxlip chooses as a name grows in the woods and meadows, harnessing the power of the nature around us. The sound of Wolves! cried the maid, the latest release from Oxlip, is Folk music born in fantasy, ethereal sounds that drift and take form from the landscape that surrounds the stories. Oxlip delicately unpacks a storyline from a soft Folk Rock wrapping in “Prophet from St. Paul” as heavy sonic footsteps diligently march through the dreamy audio wisps of “The Well (that never runs dry)”. Wolves! cried the maiduses faith in government as the ink that writes the pleas of Oklahoma farmers in “Dust” and gazes out on “Two Lovely Swans” gliding on the low rumble of guitar distortion and ping/pong vocals.
Oxlip crafts songs that offer a glimpse into a different world, a through-the-looking-glass domain, decorated with bright colors and scents against a stark musical landscape in “Garden of Roses”. A weight descends in the trance rock rhythms of “This Dark Hour” as “Lark in the Morning” rises up on thick rolling sound clouds. Oxlip utters a prayer to forest gods on vocals that entreat as they echo through canyons and over vast open expanses of desert with “Children of Zion” while Wolves! cried the maidtakes a cue from a rigid rhythm to stay vigilant with its intentions as resolve weakens in “Outshine the Devil”.
