Our Song of the Day is from Olivia Chaney with ‘Imperfections’ which features on her debut album ‘The Longest River’. The video below is from a live performance at The Living Room in New York City.
In our review of the album (read it here) David chose this particular track as a highlight: Her use of language is confident, skilfully and precisely configured and economic, while replete with cunning resonances and literary allusions. A particular hallmark of Olivia’s writing style is her telling use of stream-of-consciousness as a mode of expression rather than a mere device – most noticeable on Imperfections.
