Watch Zurich-based folk/pop songstress Ursina‘s new music video for ‘Question Untold,’ her latest single taken from her debut album ‘You Have My Heart’, out on 27th January via Radicalis.
Ursina’s pure sound combines elements of folk and pop with an innate penchant for sincere storytelling. Her single ‘Question Untold’ is a beautifully playful tale of self-consciousness and unfulfilled love. Ursina explains “it is a song about the conflict of showing and hiding feelings.” It begins by setting the scene of a vulnerable young woman anxiously preparing to share her love with another as she questions, “Why is she afraid to reveal her soul? What’s stopping her from giving up control?” Ursina is sharing a touchingly human emotion and situation. In the chorus, she sings “love is a losing game if you’re not willing to play your part, love is a wasteland if you’re not able to give your heart.” The soft tone of her voice delicately carries the meandering melodies, accompanied by the smooth guitar melodies and gentle drum beat, working together brilliantly to create a song full of wistful emotion. ‘Question Untold’ is the follow up to ‘Behind Us’ – the first single taken from her debut album ‘You Have My Heart’ which is out on 27th January.
The 31-year-old singer-songwriter was born and raised in a small village high up in the Swiss mountains of Disentis. She has taken influence from artists such as Feist, Tom Waits and Jeff Buckley, who came into her life during her teenage years, whilst also finding inspiration in the bustling Scandinavian music scene – mainly Ane Brun, Efterklang, Wildbirds & Peacedrums and José González.
Ursina will be touring Germany and Switzerland early this year, starting at the Bundeshaus in her hometown of Zurich, as well as playing shows at Berlin’s F101 Admiralspalast and Frankfurt’s Brothaus Fabrik.
‘Question Untold’ perfectly demonstrates Ursina’s impressive talent in creating delicate, emotional and thoughtful music. Her voice has a unique timbre and presence that resonates with the listener and leaves a lasting impression after the closing bars. With the release of her album coming imminently, 2017 looks set to be her year.
