Biography

"Like Tom Waits, art-pop concern Mahogany keep getting weirder while staying the same. Mahogany synthesize myriad ideas and carefully constructed sounds into a full-blown mini-suite that plays as much as a mediation and art project regarding a beloved form as it does a coherent piece of music. The group -- here just the duo of Jaclyn Slimm and founder Andrew Prinz -- fuses elements of Cocteau Twins bass-chord groove with every manner of analog drum patches, pristine cello work and Ms. Slimm's elegant vocals. Incorporating elements of dance music will hopefully win Mahogany an even larger share of fans, although it is the complicated joys of its non-traditional compositions that should really wow admirers." -- Edward Charlton, Clicky Clicky

Performing live with Ulrich Schnauss, Vampire Weekend, Spoon, Chairlift, Clinic, Bloc Party, Serena Maneesh, Interpol, Luna, Broadcast, Pains of Being Pure at Heart, and many others, Mahogany maintains a cult status amongst the group’s listeners.

Lyrics

Phase Break

Written By: Mahogany

Voyage par jour — retourné a la present
Doucément combiné — l'amour pour la luxur
Voyage par jour — retourné a la present

Une phantasme deviant
Sophistication synchronisée
Insouciant, coquettement
Balançant, comme une jeune fôret

Rolling on through, Rolling on through
The Phase Break —
Rolling on through

I'm lingering in motion —
A strategem of gold.
A painting of procession
So perfectly composed.
A diagram I wander,
A page of many folds.

A glance into a blossom
The windows pass like days.
The drops run down the petals
In the sunshine that remains.
A step into the garden;
A stroll along the plains.

Voyage par jour — retourné a la present
Doucément combiné — l'amour pour la luxur
