Singer-songwriter Jenny Dalton serves up an alluring dish of dulcetly groomed electro-pop on her latest release, Umbrella Remixes. The EP retools a handful of songs from her previous record, Umbrella, and infuses an ethereal tint in the tracks while conditioning them with a club-pop whisking. The songs permeate a warm, ambient palette relatable to Enya's shimmery raptures sautéed in trance-like trimmings and empyreal-braised pyrotechnics. The music moves like liquid crystals drizzling gently over her vocals as icicles of satiny tones latch onto the celestial beams. Dalton's songs are positively charged, buttered in glittering synths and emitting a meditative mood that is agreeable with the desire for comfort.

The aquatic glazing which garnishes the silky passages of "Better Known Vacancy" are marinated in soft flickering beats as Dalton's vocals weave through the glistening threads while reflecting in the lyrics, "Sometimes I wish I could float back to you / Where it was safe and sound cause it's a jungle out here / It's funny how they'll always drive me to that better known vacancy." The music floats on air keeping Dalton's vocals suspended on wings like in "Rusalka's Umbrella" as Dalton words perceive, "It's too late now to call a truce / You buried me in the blue / It's too late now to love you / I'm already over you."

The laser-like strands branding the synth passages of "Dear Paul" are roped in slinky club beats reminiscent of electronica artist Paul Van Dyk, while the tufts of atmospheric synths are marbled in crackling vibrations along "So Says I" projecting a futuristic-edge liken to Datarock. The light, fluffy clusters of "The Fall" are tenderly kerosene in tranquilly splayed beats relatable to Missy Higgins and nestle against Dalton's vocals as the lyrics are immersed a vat of inner turmoil, "Oh how irony can taint a perfect painting of justice / Pureness is ephemeral / Muddled with our best kept secrets / you hear the foghorn sound / You can't stand to be below the laughter / Tonight there will be fog on the Zuider Zee / And in your head."

Jenny Dalton's words and music connect with people in their desire for comfort while their lives gravitate towards turmoil. The aquatic flow of the ambient fossils and vaporous fumes in her songs feel like the passages enter the deepest recesses of Dalton's soul and come up positively vibed. Umbrella Remixes is stacked in club-oriented tracks that have a universal meaning beneath its crystal-planked surface, and tenaciously hold onto locating serenity while taking the listener on the ride.
