HELLO, BLUE ROSES - THE PORTRAIT IS FINISHED AND I HAVE FAILED... (CD)


"The sweetheart duo of Dan Bejar (Destroyer, Swan Lake, New Pornographers) & Sydney Vermont (visual artist, former Toronto Children's Choir kid singer) have tied the knot around an infectious readymade classic with their 14-track self-titled debut. The Portrait Is Finished folds the last few decades of pop music together, drawing on everything from an unabashed love of '80s AOR (Prefab Sprout & Kate Bush) to the cheery mysticism of young Scotland (Orange Juice & Felt) to prime Aquarian age femme folk of the '60s & '70s. The Portrait Is Finished was written and recorded over a period when Dan & Sydney took time out of regular life to hang out together, write and read and think about life differently... and be in Spain... unencumbered, free and easy spirit in which they first took root resulting in a sparsely populated, timeless pop sound."
