"...the melodies and the movements are strong, and the lyrics themselves in this song are honest and emotional...
"Who Are You" is a very simple song with very little instrumentation -- and that works for this piece. What we hear are Lis' distinctive vocals and finger picked guitar; telling the story of an old flame and ex love showing up years later and stirring up old emotions, causing doubts and confusion and throwing a wrench in the current relationship. In "Who Are You", Lis paints a story I think most of us can probably all relate to. Thick with a naked truth, the song slowly builds and is joined by a softly played accordion during the choruses. (A great production choice, by the way.) Aside from these movements and changes, the song's dynamic doesn't really pick up much ... at the same time, it really doesn't have to. The simplicity of this song, I feel, works -- especially for the length of the piece -- and the slowly reached crescendos with the accord ian are a wonderful touch. The lyrics are stirring and easy to follow; Lis' honesty in this song shine through with a touching story that's hard not to emotionally touch base with.
...Lis' voice is both soothing and sensitive, and does a great job of carrying the reflective nature of the lyrics... .
..."Who Are You" has a great hook and a great build; one that doesn't smack of a new musician whatsoever...the raw emotion and lyrical story of this song shine through amazingly, making me think that... Lis Faust's "Who Are You" is a silent masterpiece in many ways. Listening to several other of Lis' songs, this is obviously not something you only find with this song. Lis' ability to write a hook and create interesting musical movements and catchy vocal melodies resonate an expressive maturity mixed with a raw introversion rarely found in a lot of newer singer songwriters.
..."Who Are You", for it's rich imagery and sensual melodies, comes recommended for fans of good indie or lo-fi pop folk and the romantic singer songwriter movements..."
