The email inbox here at Aimless Skylarking is an endless struggle. It's been rather calm the last 2 weeks which allowed it to be tamed, or sorted, but I know this respite won't last. I'm about 6 weeks behind, and that brings me to London based artist Johanna Glaza and her lovely compositions. Last month, Johanna released her new single, 'Paper Widow' and I wasn't quite sure what to do with it or say about it because it was outside of what I normally like. But, it was far too lovely to ignore. Then, when I heard the B-side, 'Winter Song', I was head over heels smitten and knew I had to share her music here.
There's a graceful and refined beauty found in Johanna's voice, and her delicate ornamental compositions. The performance is grand yet feels intimate, and reminds of a ballet performance with elegant ballerinas pirouetting and dancing about en pointe. 'Paper Widow' and 'Winter Song' are out now, and can be purchased for £1 on her Bandcamp page. Stream the haunting 'Winter Song' below, it's my Song of the Day!
