“Wonders Never Cease” is the first offering from Morcheeba since having parted company with their gorgeously seductive singer Skye Edwards. Despite being a tough act to follow, new vocalist Daisy Martey is an accomplished replacement. Morcheeba have grown up and the ex-Noonday Underground crooner’s vocals have more assuredness and self-confidence. With it’s up-lifting message “Wonders Never Cease” could easily have featured on “Fragments of Freedom” but the up-tempo, vibe signifies Morcheeba’s coming of age and reinvention.
Morcheeba have come along way since releasing their genre-defining album “Big Calm” and they become synonymous with down-tempo chill-out. “Wonders Never Cease” tells of a journey of discovery and is an ode to the miracle of Morcheeba’s ability to reinvent themselves and shake off their tiresome ‘chill-out’ tag.
