Mimi Gilbert “Dark Storm” – Listen

The first thing you’ll notice about Mimi Gilbert is her arresting vocal.  And the second thing you’ll notice about Mimi Gilbert is her arresting lyrics – ‘Dark Storm‘ just bristles with external menace and dread.  Disaster has befallen her – she cannot see clearly, she can’t recognise where she is.  She needs help – that’s for certain  – only thing is “I can’t afford it“, which leaves her blundering around and punching walls and all the time claiming that “I’m solving it“.  Right.  Sounds like a solution. If the problem happens to be not hurting yourself enough.

Melbourne based, California raised, Mimi Gilbert’s ‘Dark Storm‘ is from her new album ‘Grew Inside the Water‘, which went on-line on Spetember 25th and is available physically from October 23rd.

Sure, I could climb high in a tree, or go to Skye on my holiday. I could be happy. All I really want is the excitement of first hearing The Byrds, the amazement of decades of Dylan's music, or the thrill of seeing a band like The Long Ryders live. That's not much to ask, is it?
