Song of the Week: “Fragile” by Laufey


Laufey – “Fragile”

Laufey Lín Jónsdottír is a jazz vocalist and cellist from Iceland. On “Fragile” she creates an eerie tension between the moody bossanova sounds and the vulnerable lyrics.  Like many young musicians she has taken advantage of Tik Tok for experimenting with her music.  Laufey’s debut album Everything I Know About Love is due out August 26.

Song of Last Week: “Resolution Song (Benin)” by Star Feminine Band


(I had a song picked out for last week but failed to find time to make a post, so I’m posting it now!)

Star Feminine Band – “Resolution Song (Benin)”

The seven member band from Benin is made up of girls from the ages 12 to 19.  They perform danceable music with lyrics about social issues, especially related to women and girls.  Thus they’ve been called The Linda Lindas of Benin.  Read more about the group in this article from NPR
