Felix is the musical duo of Lucinda Chua and Chris Summerlin, who make their home in England.
The focus of the album is Lucinda's askew stories, and the subtle conversation between her piano and the guitar accompaniment of Chris Summerlin, an intuitive discussion that speaks volumes by not saying too much and while never stepping on each other's lines.
The songs themselves are delicate and spare chamber pop. They are understated and deceptively simple, but deliver an emotional impact that mere decibels cannot. Lucinda's tales of woe concern the banality of domestic life, small animals, and the desire to keep the forces of the world at bay.
You Are the One I Pick may be an album of small charms, but they come with a frequency rarely found, and are myriad in number.
