Ce qu'en disait le label :
Hailing from Liverpool, Hannah takes the delicate sounds of music boxes and a raft of other instruments to concoct gently enchanting suites which seem to meld the repeated melody patterns of Steve Reich and the twinkling poise of Colleen. Re-Boxed is simply beguiling in reassessing a handful of iconic 1980s pop songs, providing a unique twist on those synth-pop vignettes and lacing them with a swelling beauty and sense of melancholy.
Carefully crafted, these four songs are touchingly reinvigorated and presented here as beautiful and intricately textured compositions in their own right. Though these songs are inextricably linked with a particular period, they’re shaped and performed in a way which divorces them from any specific time.
