Whilst in comparison to much of the back catalogue I Need You is of more optimistic demeanour that is merely a factor of contextual relativity.

The luxurious palette consists of hues of deep crimson, rich purple and dark navy with the intricate melodies and immersive vocal sinking deep in to the bone marrow filling the body with an intoxicating warmth leaving the listener with no sense of an outside world.

The only downside is that I Need You is all over within a mere one hundred and seventy eight seconds leaving the audience immediately desirous of more.

A couple of tracks have surfaced from the EP, the most recent of which, released as a standalone single on the 9th, Blame is best heard with a draw full of clean handkerchiefs prior to approaching.

The dreamy acoustics immerse themselves deep in to the limbic system and the listener finds themselves wallowing in the tear streaked melodic syncopation of the composition as the beat scatters through the ears overlayed by the intoxicating and hypnotic flow of the woe-struck emotional melancholia of the vocal.

On occasion as a music reviewer I am hit by a gem and I just know this is a musician I want to follow their progress over many years – Mara is a case in point.

The quirky instrumentation, which gives Post Office In Portland an immediate anchoring in the ears is joined by a singular vocal that holds the mind transfixed in the rolling combinations of cadence and pitch and although aware there is a tale unfolding the listener feels themselves merging with the song and rather than focusing on any one thing becoming subsumed with the hypnotic effect of the composition and vainly wishing the track never concludes.

The softly hazed compositions have a dreamy hypnotic quality to them and the listener finds themselves being drawn, akin to whirlpool, in to the spiraling gyrations of the music and losing all sense of the travel of time.

Orbits is the second of the five tracks on the EP, which is available on bandcamp.

The uncluttered collection of eleven songs on the album, which is available on bandcamp, like the cotton wool of cumulus clouds drifting on a summers day, slowly reshape themselves in immersive layers of almost tangible imagery that radiate a palpable warmth through the speakers.

The title track yellow house is the antepenultimate track.
