Dreaming Through Noise.

I was sent a lovely album called Dreaming Through Noise in the mail from an artist that was in Atlanta last week, and after listening to it, I’m sorry I had to miss the show. That artist is Vienna Teng, and she brings a refreshing sound to my ears with her demonstration of wholesome and appeasing vocals. The music behind her is also enough to set my currently somewhat troubled mind at ease with the way it twists and turns along with Teng’s voice. Lyrically speaking, as I flip through the CD insert, it’s all pretty profound and certainly asserts a life of experience that you’re not going to find in the emo punk rock driven force that’s being spoon fed to the public on the radio. I’m also a sucker for any kind of music that happens to involve a strong strings ensemble, being a player myself, and that’s found here and incorporated perfectly. When I listen to this, I’m reminded of days spent obsessing over Sarah McLachlan and Tori Amos over ten years ago, and it’s a welcome trip down memory lane that’ll keep me coming back to listen to Teng’s collection.
