Wisconsin is home to Sean Carey who was once in the band Bon Iver. All We Grow is his debut album, a backdrop to life rushing by. Like a film sped up, a few months worth of time unfold in a matter minutes. All We Grow sees life erupting and evolving, taking shape and dyeing with the cycle forever continuing taking a new form of life in each track.
Sean’s vocal is gentle and holds a sad and lonely emotion to it. There are some beautiful melodies reminiscent of Sigur Ros although not quite as intense or dramatic. Sean’s background stems from his classical percussion days at Wisconsin Uni and gives credit to the brilliant composition and feel of this impressive debut.
Subtle textures of sounds ring out to give a moving and clam atmosphere which seems at times extremely fragile. The percussion is particularly clever as are the various sounds created to make up this is beautiful album.
