DON'T COME CRYING TO FYOHNA'S "GHOST HEART"

September 5, 2017

 

To sing about being wronged is one thing, but to speak the truth with the emotional presence, grace, and clarity that FYOHNA—the duo of Katarina Gleicher and producer Elliot Glasser—does is another that one doesn’t find so often. It is this bareness as it is met with a sort of triumphant musical buoyancy that makes FYOHNA’s sound so special. A novel blend of warm synths à la James Blake and sequenced drums that pull from the expansiveness of trap, the complexity of west african rhythms, and the moods of trip hop equally.

 

Songs are reminiscent of the more reflective singer- songwriters of the past decade—amongst Feist, St. Vincent, and Cat Power—and atmospheres range from the catchy sweetness found in singles “Believe You” and “Ghost Heart” to the mellow brooding that carries the songs “Misjudged” and “Lucy Lou.”

 

Finishing on a high note, the electric duo FYOHNA from Los Angeles have spent the remainder of the summer touring across the East Coast. Recently released is their catchy single “Ghost Heart” which really captures the dreamy sound that this duo has been praised for. The track takes the typical heartbreak subject and turns it into self-love empowerment making it all the more refreshing. Keep an eye out for more to come with these two!
