SINGLE STREAM REVIEW: Katherine Aly – ‘Rules’

Glasgow, UK sensation Katherine Aly has done it again with another Europop single and music video for “Rules,” a single she spoke to Eloquent Mag about at length earlier in the week. Sung with a beautiful, whispery intonation, a technique cleverly twilled by other contemporary Irish and Scottish pop singers such as Sinead O’Connor, Annie Lennox, and the late Dolores O’Riordan, “Rules” is a memorable piece with a visual earthiness; Katherine’s avant-garde outfit and wilderness backdrop center the experience, and we’re left wanting more from the visually stunning singer.

ALBUM REVIEW: Jordana Talsky – ‘Zahava’

Zahava, meaning “golden” in Hebrew, is a universal study on muscle and memory; all instrumentation is produced solely from vocal and body loops the artist created using a Roland Boss RC505 loop station. The Sara Bareilles look-alike has been praised before for her ingenious use of a capella technique by CBC Music and LA Music Critic, and her song, “RUN” was a finalist pick for the 2018 CBC Searchlight Contest.
