In addition to an album made with the group My Friend Wallis, When The Blue Turned Yellow, recordings Crystal Dorval has developed since early in 2012 fill quite the lot. Lately in those of her own and most recent project, White Poppy, Ms. Dorval has continued to explicate the immeasurable presence of her variously experimental sound.
Such as those found in When The Blue Turned Yellow, clearly defined lyrics imparting momentary and lasting impressions such as “We are not here for very long, a day you waste is forever gone,” are seemingly absent amongst the new oeuvre. In “Without Answers” from S/T, unassuming lyrics the likes of “Without answers, I’m free” make for candid moments that are serene and chillingly picturesque. In its gaze, well rounded, polished and diversified, the colors of fragmentary expressions abstract.
