Marie Glad – Bedroom Stories, Part One
2010, Royal Sister
Marie Glad is a Swedish singer, songwriter, visual artist, designer, film maker and yoga instructor. That’s enough vocations to prove a point of some sort. As a singer/songwriter Glad saw moderate success with her 2009 debut album Rescue Me. She returned in 2010 with a four-song EP entitled Bedroom Stories, Part One. The EP is full of bland, fluffy pop music that’s easily convertible to the dance scene with the appropriate remixes. Glad has a nice enough voice, but the material presented here is the musical equivalent of empty calories. The peak of the EP comes on the last track, a second version of the song “Butterfly” featuring Duvestar. Duvestar is a partnership between Glad and Irish DJ/producer Oisin Lunny (U2, Gangstarr, Sinead O’Connor). There are points of promise here, but little is truly realized.
