Eiyn Sof

Bloodstreams (Blue Fog)


Melissa Boraski is Eiyn Sof. As such, she uses her tenor voice, acoustic as well as electric guitar and analogue keys to moody effect. She tells stories of solitude, motherhood, love, having a place in the natural world and longing to understand it all, sometimes to get away from it all. Through layered vocals, chants, whispers, sighs, howls, growls and whispers, a balance of broken balladry and freaky folk-rock, Eiyn Sof is frequently lovely and disturbing. “Take by Storm” and “Whatever you Think of Me” are two great back-to-back tracks from this spacious home recording that boasts guests such as Bob Egan on pedal steel and Rick White, who also mixed the album at his Elder Schoolhouse space.
