The Hunted

Connie Lim describes her music as “retrotronica,” a melding of old-school folk and modern techno. The 24-year-old Lim’s reverence for role models like Suzanne Vega, Feist and Natalie Merchant is made evident in her sophomore set through the purity of her vocals and her Anglophile inclinations. Likewise, several songs—“Sugar,” “Now” and “Morning”—evoke the pastoral imagery of quiet idyllic environs. On the other hand, the pulsating rhythms and electronica coursing through “The Hunted,” “Walk On” and “There She Walks Again” suggest more urbane haunts. A remix of “Sugar” becomes a radical remake, a wash of cosmic effects and deep dance grooves. The Hunted is well worth pursuing.
