See this girl in the blanket? Her name is Shara, she's based out of Toronto, and her debut track, "Singapore," sounds as cosy and comforting as that blanket looks. There's a tear to her voice that recalls Karen O at her most lovelorn, while the music is pared back, folk-stoked, American-tinged pop. According to her Twitter, Shara also resides on a massive ranch-cum-horse-santuary that specializes in sustainable argriculture, which sounds cool, but remote. No wonder she's dreaming of Singapore.
The singer's debut EP is slated for early/mid 2014 release on Manimal Records, but in the meantime Shara's busy collaborating with Chains of Love frontwoman, Nathalia Pizarro, on a yet to be determined side-project. Intriguing, but for now, enjoy this.
