What's so good?

I've always really admired the music Rainbow Chan makes, but I haven't entirely understood it. Until now that is.

As co-winner of the 2011 FBi Northern Lights Competition (alongside Oliver Tank), she visited the home of her musical idol Bjork (Rainbow Chan's music bears a definite resemblance to her) to develop her sound. After gaining a cult following locally with the release of a number of singles, she seems to have taken another step-forward with her new track "Skinny Dipping."

The new single is absolutely gorgeous, and a little easier to take in than her previous works. While it's definitely more accessible, Chan hasn't shifted too far from her interesting style. Light and dreamy, "Skinny Dipping" is carried by Chan's charming vocals and her unmistakable take on electronic music. Classically trained in piano, saxophone and vocals, she creates loops with a variety of quirky instruments.

This is the first track off her upcoming EP release (mid-year). You can check out her previous singles on her SoundCloud.
