After a decade in dream pop band Devics, “Seasoned Eyes Were Beaming” is Sara Lov’s first solo album (except for one EP).If you know Devics, you pretty much know what to expect from Sara Lov because her going solo hasn’t caused a dramatic change in sound.
Lov’s softly sung childlike vocals are tastefully draped over soundscapes that come with great melodies. Check out “Old Friends”, a Simon & Garfunkel cover she effortlessly makes her own. And while you’re at it, give “Animals” a spin. This duet with Sea Wolf’s Alex Brown Church is the absolute highlight of this album if you ask me.
