The Corrs : Jupiter Calling

Jupiter Calling projects a magical fairytale just as strongly as its predecessors, cadenced with vocalist Andrea Corr’s dreamy vocals and the band’s playful mix of instrumentation to create an upbeat yet complex piece of art.

While The Corrs aren’t afraid to create uplifting melodies, their music is also deep and soulful in the way it explores love, romance and companionship. Opener ‘Son of Solomon’ is seductive, comparing love to wine and seeking light in the darkness of the soul. It’s all crooned in sweet vocals that are layered with gentle acoustics and a wonderful violin composition. 
‘Bulletproof Love’also features beautiful acoustics, which then give way to an upbeat and playful rhythm in the chorus. However, among all the fairytale vibes of love and light, there is also loss and pain injected into Jupiter Calling. The emotional depth is creatively projected through harmonic melodies, but it’s still beating with an intensity of its own. ‘No Go Baby’ really plucks at the heartstrings; the lyricism is striking and reverberates with heartache and grief. ‘The Sun and the Moon’ is emotional in its exploration of loss, ending the album with a mystical yet candid ambience.
