Clare and the Reasons are back with another orchestral pop album to prove that love songs don’t have to come in the form of ‘80s power ballads. Clare has wisely given an edge to her vocals by singing with a slightly harsher tone, similar to the sultry tones of Natasha Khan. Regina Spektor is also brought to mind as you listen to ‘Mellifera’, in which the melody, though not sung with as much conviction, is as intricate and spontaneous as a Spektor song.

With her band the Reasons, led by her husband Olivier Manchon, she follows up her sparkling 2007 debut with another winner full of impressive melodies and wistful vocals that weave a shimmering web of melancholy romance. The tunes are enhanced by the inventive arrangements of Olivier's, charts that echo the best elements of the French chanson tradition without a single false note

About Clare and the Reasons. Clare Muldaur, the daughter of musician Geoff Muldaur, established herself as an idiosyncratic indie singer/songwriter before she officially joined forces with the Reasons, releasing two solo albums, Sweetheart and Bentley Circle, in 2002 and 2003, respectively. She teamed up with her husband, Olivier Manchon (the two met when Muldaur was studying jazz composition at the Berklee College of Music), bassist Alan Hampton, cellist Christopher Hoffman, violist Beth Meyers, and drummer Greg Ritchie to form Clare & the Reasons in 2005

Spearheading a return to romance and sappy love songs, Clare and The Reasons are back with their sophomore effort, Arrow. After stealing what warm hearts exist on the indie music scene, the husband-and-wife duo wasted no time getting back to their Ditmas Park apartment where they pieced together a colorful collection of stringed harmonies, occasional brass melodies, 50s-era innocence, and of course, those delicate, fairy tale vocals. Once again, the effort has proved fruitful

Clare and the Reasons call Brooklyn home, but after touring around the world extensively for their first two albums with Van Dyke Parks, My Brightest Diamond, and on their own, they needed a new setting – one that would make them see and hear differently. For 8 months in 2011 they lived in an apartment on Berlin’s Bergstrasse, on the western edges of what used to be the East. They got a 1968 Schwalbe moped – model KR-51 – and sped around the city at a velocity the congested New York streets would have prohibited. Collaborators of great talent stepped in; Sufjan Stevens sang a duet with Clare and Van Dyke Parks played piano on one song. On their second album Arrow, the band experimented with more electronic elements, brass, and a stacked approach. Shara Worden (My Brightest Diamond) lent her voice to a song. The album was a stepping stone to their newest effort.

Headed by the husband and wife duo of Clare Muldaur Manchon and Oliver Manchon, Clare and the Reasons’ follow-up to 2009’s Arrow is a balanced mixture of feather-light vocals, expertly arranged instrumentation and witty, smart lyrics. The Brooklyn-based band has created something special for listeners with their third album, KR-51. Taking eight months to create, it skates over the lines of all genres to produce songs that are as unique as they are memorable.
