Thinline

California native Noëlle Hampton is based in Austin these days, but you can still hear the Pacific Ocean breeze blowing through Thinline. But there are whispers on that wind, dark secrets about the heart that Noëlle captures in artfully elliptical lyrics and sweetly stinging melodies alike. Late-’90s Sheryl Crow is the most obvious reference point for Noëlle’s voice and producer Mark Hallman’s alternately silky-smooth and strategically jagged production, but a cover of U2’s “Love Is Blindness” is more to the point—its meditative lyric walks the thin line between doubt and faith just as do her originals.
