Mononoke #2 - New Music "Introducing"

I've been on a bit of a roll with female singers this week, so we'll let that continue a little bit longer with the return of Mononoke, an artist who still hasn't reveled her true identity but has followed up last years wonderful "Alice" with the equally forlorn beauty of "Barefoot and Broken".

The track is a plaintive piano led ballad which comes with the guarantee of stirring emotions within, through subtle atmospherics and Mononoke's stunning vocals delivery the listener is plunged into a dreamlike world of evocative thoughts and pure bliss. The accompanying video (with clips taken from the film 'Hanna') only helps you to drift away too. Simple yet devastating, as the repeated echoes of "hurts in the end" close the track it's easy to say that Mononoke has confirmed herself as a future pop starlet for the late, lonely nights ahead.
