The Wild Strawberries are a band largely driven by the husband and wife duo of Ken Harrison (keyboardist / songwriter) and Roberta Carter Harrison (vocals).
The sultry voice of Roberta Carter Harrison has an authority and strength that enables it to float along on its own melody through the album's labyrinth of sound. On the up-tempo tracks, Roberta's smoky voice commands that you follow her every word, seducing the listener like a femme fatale in a black and white movie. Roberta's signature vocals drift along the haunting waves of Wild Strawberries' heart-achingly beautiful ballads, proving that sometimes a delicate whisper is more powerful than a deafening scream.
The previous releases by the Wild Strawberries have mapped their gradual progression from radio-friendly innocence (Grace, Bet You Think I'm Lonely) to the gold selling anthem-filled Heroine.

"An excellent album from Canadian couple Ken and Roberta Harrison. Roberta's voice is very dreamy in the Margot Timmins (Cowboy Junkies) style. Ken plays a variety of instruments on this album, including piano, organ, and guitars, plus he wrote all the songs. On the first 2 tracks Sarah McLachlan plays guitars, and on various tracks Ashwin Sood (Sarah's husband) plays the drums and other instruments. This is a dreamy album...synth rock/pop at its best. The booklet contains all lyrics."

"Both this album and Quiver are excellent. The instrumention, sound and mix are something like Bjork - modern, clever, sophisticated - but where Bjork would go operatic, the Wild Strawberries have gone '60s black-girl electro-pop. A lot of quirky character in the music and a lot of fun. A truly great electro-pop band."
