diskant Recurring musical themes and motifs, but nice songs. Faves:
3. The Prayer: innovative music. There's an impressive musical arc of suspense that builds up during the entire piece. I only regret that this suspense isn't resolved, instead it's ebbing away at the end.
4. Ingenue: nice song, my favorite track. Here I appreciate the recurring musical motifs! Emotive singing. Towards the end there's perhaps a rudimentary unresolved arc of musical suspense, in fact musical repetitions just ebb away. Favorite track: Ingenue.

about

Digital version of the LP released by Paradigms Recordings. The LP can be purchased directly from Paradigms Recordings: www.paradigms-recordings.com

"Innovative playing techniques are combined with a battery of effects and loops, drawing those refined strings into slim ribbons of dark folk and swirling neoclassical crescendos. On "Midwest," Mulhearn's voice is pure and gentle, hinting of Appalachia. It radiates warmth, inviting the listener to lean in closer to catch every breathy syllable and heartfelt lyric while the song itself rumbles softly beneath like oncoming thunder."
– Pitchfork

"These carefully-constructed songs take their time to build, layering on more and more foundations of heady instrumentation until they’re all but swirling skyward in heedless, drunken rapture.… Mulhearn has crafted a truly impressive, genre-defying statement here, and it’ll be more than thrilling to see where her musical travels take her next.”
– A Closer Listen

“DIVINE CIRCLES keeps their sounds intimate and calm, slowly building the track in the round, with the violinist taking up the bow later on with gorgeous swells of arboreal melodies along with those slow dirgy guitars and some haunted female vocalizations.”
– Aquarius Records
