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.
