My first thought when listening to this song was I needed to be in a smoke filled gin joint. Late, like midnightish, drinking my sorrows away whilst listening to this particular tune, wondering where it all went wrong. This sounds like a classic already. The vocal work is stellar. Her vocals are nothing short of breathtaking, with a solid slightly husky mid-tone range. Her tone is so mournful, that you connect with your on an emotional level almost immediately. I had to look up a Greek Bouzouki to see exactly what it was. What I can tell you is it along with it’s player produced an amazing sound that makes this piece so original. I love the way the music weaves in and our around the lead singers vocals. There is so much float in the song it’s unreal.
Would I Listen to More of Their Stuff: Yes. As it turns out I am a huge fan of music that features a Greek Bouzouki. I would put this on a playlist with some of my Amy Winehouse and Adele music. For those of us into this type of music welcome to Nirvana man. I don’t even know what else to say, except if you don’t check it out it’s totally your loss.
