Now time for something quite different. This is Johanna Glaza, a Lithuanian artist who’s been quietly releasing music over the last years, winning over critics and fans alike with her unique sound. The press release says she won’t be pigeonholed – and we read that a lot, but this time is seems accurate, especially when trying to define her sound. 

It’s delicate but often soaring, haunting and sparse and quite beautiful (think Joana Newsom) but when listening to the album you can’t help be blown away by how impressive her vocal is. She’s the kind of artist that isn’t necessarily instant, it took us a few listens of new single, Exile, before we were converted, although it’s certainly captivating from the off. Exile is the title track from her upcoming second album. Have a look…

Make your own mind up when Exile is released 28th February.
