“As soon as it becomes your profession to critique a book, or movie, or record then, not only do you lose your passion for it, but it loses validity for whoever you’re trying to turn it onto because they’re going to be approaching it from a consumer’s point of view, not from a professional writer’s point of view.”

Former leader of the Montreal band One Candle Power, Christina Frances has re-emerged under the moniker Darling Arms with a 5 track ep, All the Ghosts. Released through Blue Skys Turn Black in May of this year, the beautiful voice of Ms. Frances has just recently hit my ears.
Near the end, former OCP member, Andre Guerette, told her "...he always felt like he was getting in my way of making more beautiful, quiet music." So from a four piece indie rock outfit, to time in seclusion, and then a re-birth into a solo acoustic experience, Darling Arms has emerged from the wreckage with an ep that has it's moments of greatness. A passionate and beautiful voice backed by sparse acoustic guitar just the way we like it.
Below are two tracks from All the Ghosts.
