Our Song of the Day is from Johanna Glaza’s new EP Letter to New York. Her evocative vocals and visionary forward-thinking creations make comparisons to Kate Bush inevitable. The song Wonderland is backed by a slowly plucked ukulele, harp-like mimicry that heightens the baroque-folk feel.
Combined with her hushed vocals the song immerses the listener in fairytale like world, a nightly vision that captures the imagination from the opening lines:
You saw the night falling
but you didn’t do a thing
You heard the night calling
But you didn’t say a thing.
The presence of a mysterious second entity is reminiscent of the ghostly seduction of a night visiting song but nothing is certain in the dream-like world of Johanna Glaza.
