Song 1: LAYLA – New Year (January 1st 2018)
Artist: LAYLA (Josephine Vander Gucht)
Song: New Year
I discovered this gem today when Oh Wonder tweeted about this being the first song they (Josephine and Anthony) worked on together. Despite absolutely loving Oh Wonder I somehow failed to even think about looking into any solo or side projects they may have had before Oh Wonder came to be. It’s silly when I think about it given how fast Oh Wonder exploded. Of course, Josephine did music before and of course, it’s amazing. Having listened to several times now I’m really enjoying it and absolutely love the lyrics. I must confess though I did find myself missing Anthony’s vocals on this track and I imagine that’s probably since before this track I had only ever heard her sing with him. In the coming days, I look forward to exploring and discovering more of her solo work. Here’s to hoping I discover more gems like this one in the coming days!
365 New Tunes is a project inspired by a tweet from the band Stars on December 31st, 2017 encouraging people to listen to a new song every day of the next year.
