DARK SKIES ASSOCIATION / NIGHT SCHOOL
It may be her sixth album but nilsson shows no sign of slowing down – the thirteen tracks here show her at her most confessional yet her most open, layered on top of her brand of midnight disco.
The melodies here sound like half remembered snippets of nights out – choruses here, synth passages there – while never giving way to all out bland pop. It’s a very ‘fever ray’ approach to sound and it pays of for her here; the lyrical complexity and poetry in her songs float like a dream on her faded out pop music to make something cerebral yet ethereal.
