The amazingly talented Maria Quinn has arrived on the scene with not so much an immediate bang but a slow burner. This album Closure challenges our perspectives about modern music and draws us in to some fascinating story telling. Its difficult to tell if Maria is a poet or musician first (she excells in both ) At first listen you are drawn to either the narrative or the music but after a few listens it becomes obvious of all the different elements in each song. ”I find it fascinating that we can learn so much about ourselves by writing songs.” Well  i find this album fascinating because we can learn a lot from listening to songs like these. Not the typical emotional love stuff but more intimate material such as how important our fingers are to us in Tiny Painted Room  A look at a man who is vastly different to the one we see in Malcolm Brings the Milk. Not only is this clever writing Maria has surrounded herself with some seriously impressive musicians. Seonaid Aitken and Patsy Reid bring in beautiful string arrangements and although their are classical and jazz elements they all settle down nicely to an exceptionally fine album
