All Are One
By: Julia Cirignano
Sophe Lux & The Mystic have released their enchanted new album titled All Are One. Currently, the band consists of solely Gwynneth Haynes on lead vocals, drum machines, synths, piano, guitar, and backup vocals. This one-woman band is a purple-tinted revolution consisting of only peaceful protests with glitter and a cherry on the top.
On All Are One, Haynes explores art rock, yet her music has been labeled as electro-pop shamanism, dream pop, R&B, Chamber pop, operatic pop, and gospel rock. This album gives us a look into her both modern and also traditional world. She embraces the world of hippies, with peaceful messages and a casually beautiful voice. On the other hand, she also explores a modern, visually creative side of music. Both her music and visual qualities have been compared the late and great David Bowie.
This extraterrestrial being has also joined the recent political conversation with her newest single “Love Is Waiting”, and continues to explore the themes of peace and happiness throughout the entire album. Haynes’ voice is rough compared to the fluidity of her music which creates a wonderful, and unique contrast full of soul and authenticity.
Awesome album, I agree. Just getting into it.
