The next two posts are for, in my humble opinion, two of the most extraordinary artists in music today in terms of artistic creativity and raw, genuine talent. Perhaps surprisingly both use piano and voice as their primary instruments, firstly Anja Plaschg aka Soap&Skin who has already shared one track from her forthcoming EP / Mini LP 'Narrow' (due in the UK March 19th - pre-order here) and now follows it with the second...
"Wonder", which is perhaps one of the simpler tracks on the EP is lead by a serenely restrained piano and orchestral choruses where Anja's inimitable ghostly vocals echo with the melancholy key strokes, subdued, heartfelt and genuinely beautiful. Similarly her lyrics intimate and emotive, Soap&skin continues to be one of the most compelling and rewarding listens. Make sure you don't miss her live return when Soap&Skin play London's Scala on April 11th - tickets (full Euro tour dates on Songkick).
