Daralee Fallin is working with drum machines and synths with effects — familiar elements of electronic music — across this four-song release. From the jump, though, there's an undeniably organic feel to the music and a warmth that doesn't just cradle the listener in a sense of comfort and well-being; it conjures images of suggestive horizons shrouded in a morning fog just before the full force of sunlight burns it away. The third track, with its '80s electro percussion swimming amid a flow of drones and melodic swells, sounds like lonely dance music filled with an unresolved yearning. The final song is blissed-out, neo-tribal sonics like something you might — and should — hear in a Ridley Scott film. On this release, Via excels at evoking a sense of mystery and transcendence with a subtle and gentle grace.
