This week, my music world has been all about Alina Baraz.
Listening to the latest Soulection mixtape I became infatuated with the Abjo Refix of her tune "Drift." Then, upon some minimal investigation, I realized that Alina is also the vocalist of the edible and bass-laced track "Make you Feel," released earlier this year and one that I couldn't stop listening to.
Well, this discovery was timed perfectly with her most recent release "Fantasy," a passionate and stunning tune that she's released with frequent collaborator and Danish producer Galimatias.
I think Alina Baraz is one to keep an eye on in 2015. While she's slowly released tracks throughout the year, she's teamed up with some great producers to provide a sound that's Lana Del Rey-esque -- a perfectly gelled accompaniment to production and remixes, but soaked with a lot less pout.
