Mozart's Sister has released 'Good Thing Bad Thing', from her debut full-length album Being. Out now via Asthmatic Kitty.
Uncategorise-able, Mozart's Sister (otherwise known as Caila Thompson-Hannant) uses erratic ideas and her own unique musical style to cut through the crap at the over crowded synth-pop table. 'Good Thing Bad Thing' is the sort of track that begs to be repeated - as though you're not quite sure what you just witnessed. The weirdly hypnotic and unexpectedly simple video (made by filmmakers Eva and Martin) accompanies the entirely-her-own song perfectly - in that it's hard to tell how seriously you should take it.
Her sound has completely bamboozled me; as though the inspiration is taken from studying R&B and synth-pop, drawing out the characteristics of each, and then twisting them to fit her purpose - whatever monster it might create.
Mozart's Sister's charm is rooted in the fact that you're forced to take it exactly as it is; catchy, eerily beautiful and wholly confusing. This is addictive pop for people that hate pop, and it's really fucking good.
