Dolls Come To Life - "The Groundskeeper's Daughter" (self released)

"Dolls Come To Life are singer/songwriter Michelle Cross and experimental musician Joe Frawley. Their debut self-titled album, released in 2013 to critical acclaim, blended piano/vocal songs with dark ambient sound collages to explore the complex relations between children and their inanimate companions. Their new album, The Groundskeeper's Daughter, pushes further into uncharted territory of song and soundscape. A non-linear story emerges, in which the image of a garden is central. An inner awakening? Memories of an ancient trauma? A young girl coming of age among the topiary, the ivy, the hidden paths? There are ghosts in the garden, of that we are sure. Or are the events merely the disappearing ink of a fast fading dream? Whatever interpretation the listener may arrive at, The Groundskeeper's Daughter will certainly haunt you."
