Emiliana Torrini is an Iceland-Italian vocalist based in England.
Dead Things, To Be Free and Baby Blue
and the album Love In The Time Of Science (1999)
trip-hop cliches wed to trivial imitations of Bjork's electronic arrangements.
Other than her skillful balance of innocence and intensity, Torrini had little
to offer that had not been heard before.
Fisherman's Woman (Rough Trade, 2005), basically a requiem for her boyfriend, is a more traditional
singer-songwriter album that abandons the cliches (Bjork, Kate Bush, etc)
and the eleborate arrangements,
and focuses on the message.
Dan Carney's chamber arrangements were instead the highlight of
Me And Armini (2008), which otherwise was merely a parade of
electronic pop-jazz ballads.
