There is something amiss in Pageant Dove's neighborhood in "Still Water"

Pageant Dove out of Stamford, Connecticut makes music, writes songs with artistic grooves that fit together albeit sometimes uneasily just like the two words that comprise her musical moniker. I don't mean that her sound is disjointed, quite the contrary her songs have an elegance to them but buried deep in between her wide eyed vocal delivery and pointed prose there are layers and layers of emotions. In between mischievous twists of sounds there is something that feels like deeply dark commentary.

The track Still Water sparkles instantly with pretty orchestration turned inside out with evocative. provocative lyrics that let you know that something is seriously amiss, askew in this story. The result is some relationship shot through a fun house mirror.
