‚Sinner & Saint‘ is title of the debut EP from singer Lexi Layne. She teamed up with Clint Fowler for working on a five track release that is scheduled for August 6th. As the cover artwork indicates, the music on this release is dark and melancholic. Style-wise it is a mix of rock, metal and electronics, a blend reflected by the opener ‚Dominate‘. The song come with a chorus that is rather melodic and catchy. Still it feels like darkness embraces your soul while listening to the song that reminds me in parts of Drain STH but also has some electronica moments a la Nitzer EBB in the middle part.
Electronica is the main base for the calmer ‚Bloodless‘, a song that shows a singer that is familiar with her craft. A similar approach is what ‚Lost Soul‘ is built on, just with a bit more of a cinematic vibe.
The title track finishes of the EP, an atmospheric track that begins calm and builds up to a rocking tune that acts as a well-chosen ending of this release.
‚Sinner &Saint‘ is a debut that shows an artist with a really good voice. Lexi Layne knows how to work with her vocals to create an atmosphere and although the songs aren‘t a mind-blowing innovation, there is still enough good stuff that makes it worth to check out this EP.
