Real Groove issue 104, May 2002

Noisy Neighbours - NZ Music by Brent Cardy

Undinal Songs (Random Static) is the new record from Wellington's Daphne Lawless, the second for this distinctive singer/songwriter. Inspired by the water spirit personality (undine), the album is a collection of friendly, if occasionally dramatic melodies, and even includes an instrumental jig. Lawless' keyboard playing and bare, expressive vocals are a bed for her lyrics of people, nature and emotions, with 'Sparks' and 'Two Swans' a good introduction to her talent. For collectors of the slightly bizarre, Undinal Songs also has two songs sung in Esperanto, the other international language (apart from music, that is).
