Then, when things fizzled almost a decade later, Lov figured she might as well go solo. She immediately hitched up with Nettwerk, who have made her new solo career fully blossom, and now, just two months after the release of The Young Eyes EP , her stunning debut album Seasoned Eyes Were Beaming is here. At each turn, Seasoned Eyes Were Beaming shows itself to be a unique art form. From the cover artΓÇÖs delicate flower design to LovΓÇÖs echoing folk tunes to the entire albumΓÇÖs riff on the idealism of youth, Lov marks a journey of the self thatΓÇÖs both positive and reassuring. The music is as moody as expected, with heartfelt vocals and LovΓÇÖs seductive cool, which comes across as both dark and devious while still managing to sound somewhat heavenly. Surprisingly, Seasoned Eyes Were Beaming only features two of the five tracks from her recent EP, in turn consisting of eight catchy and hypnotic new tracks. Lov shows her versatility on this record with the inclusion of theatrical keyboard melodies and wavering guitar riffs. However, it must be noted that Seasoned Eyes Were Beaming carries a sound reminiscent of the languorous pop melodies she created with Devics. ΓÇ£Just Beneath The ChordsΓÇ¥ starts things off at a slow pace, with its unique marxophone backing melody that sparks feelings of a boat rocking gently amongst the waves. Now, if youΓÇÖve got no clue what a marxophone actually is then youΓÇÖll be pleased to hear that itΓÇÖs a rare fretless zither instrument with four sets of chord strings, pretty neat huh? After that weΓÇÖre hit with ΓÇ£FrankieΓÇ¥ which stunningly showcases LovΓÇÖs shaky and distant vocals. Later on, the haunting piano melody of ΓÇ£New YorkΓÇ¥ sends chills down our spines, as the title track knocks us back shortly afterwards with a quaint guitar melody and the muffled tap-tap of a snare drum. The charming duet ΓÇ£AnimalsΓÇ¥ featuring a musical dialogue between her and Alex Brown Church is a personal favorite. Essentially itΓÇÖs a breakup song, but it comes across as something much deeper than that, as itΓÇÖs led steadily by a simplistic and jaunty guitar melody. Also, the eerie ballad ΓÇ£Tell Me HowΓÇ¥ is another solid tune about relationships and inevitable breakups. What really makes this album stand out, however, is LovΓÇÖs introspective and thought provoking lyrics. In ΓÇ£A Thousand BeesΓÇ¥ Lov cries out almost quizzically, ΓÇ£how sweet is the revenge/when you donΓÇÖt want it anymore/how meaningless the defense/when youΓÇÖre not fighting anymore.ΓÇ¥ Then later on, Lov reminds us of how easy it is to get hurt in ΓÇ£FountainΓÇ¥ when she remarks, ΓÇ£donΓÇÖt you wish you could throw your pennies back at them/fountain fountain/ we are the same.ΓÇ¥ ItΓÇÖs clear that Lov has a way with words that hit hard.
