Christine Leakey – Tapping Trees in a Trinket Box of Treasure

Christine Leakey’s long awaited debut solo album is a blooming bittersweet macabre, a gentle waltzing collection of soft pop songs inflected with delicate dissonance. The aesthetic achieved alternates between romantic and eerie, abandoned carnivals and haunted meadows, like some musical journey through the mind of Tim Burton. If you haven’t time for the full journey through this choose-your-own-adventure album, I would recommend jumping to page three for the swooning brilliance of ‘Here I Stand’ where you will find Christine Leakey seducing her lover into some sort of Balkan den for a fortune telling.
