Olenka & The Autumn Lovers ( )

And Now We Sing
Open House Arts Collective ( )
“If I broke into your heart/With a paper clip and pin/And a tiny violin/Would you let me stay?” purrs lead vocalist and old soul Olenka Krakus in “Clean,” the second track off of And Now We Sing by Olenka and the Autumn Lovers.
In the much-anticipated follow-up to their critically-acclaimed debut album, the London, Ontario-based folk-pop storytellers certainly carve a cozy spot in listeners’ hearts. From wistful, weaving melodies to playful staccato bursts, each of the album’s 14 tracks tells an intriguing narrative from start to finish. Teeming with enchanting instrumentals—including cello, violin and mandolin—and Krakus' effortlessly intricate vocals, And Now We Sing is one meditatively magnetic release.

Although largely soaked in melancholy, And Now We Sing is contemplative in a calming, cathartic manner—an approach perhaps best exemplified by the delicate guitar strumming and soothing violin solo in “Motel Blues.”
