Kalyna Rakel - Who Knew
It's a melodic sensibility along the lines of Amy Winehouse from this vocal, but that vibrato is all Gin Wigmore. Kalyna Rakel has a history of going her own way, and here is no exception. Her talents as a graphic artist are pretty clear. This video was made on a $12 budget by her hand alone.
I feel similarly about the video and the song: they are both simple, elegant, and a little bit scrappy, with a blues inflection over the top of a fine indie-rock groove.
Kalyna Rakel is a singer-songwriter based out of Toronto, Canada. This song is currently featured in our CHILL NEW Songwriter playlist.
