Basia Bulat - "In The Night" - Video
Canadian singer/songwriter Basia Bulat is getting some major play time today at the She Writes Rock HQ.
Her debut album "Oh, My Darling" (out Feb. 5th on Rough Trade) is full of whimsical tunes that sway back and forth between folk and chamber pop.
It's amazing that she wasn't snapped up by Broken Social Scene.
What I also find amazing is that she was a background singer for The Veils when they were on the road.
Say what??? This is no background singer!
Vocally, I know a lot of people are going to pull out the Feist and Joni Mitchell comparisions because she's Canadian but I don't think either one really fits.
Her voice actually reminds me more of early Jewel mixed with Dolores O'Riordan of the Cranberries.
Basia kicks off her tour January 16th in Ontario.
After a few Canadian dates, she'll criss-cross the U.S.
NYCers be on the alert - she'll be playing Bowery Ballroom on February 29th with St. Vincent.
Should be an out of this world show!!
Here's the video for Basia Bulat's single "In The Night".
It's one of the best giddy fun videos that I've seen in a long time or at least since the last time I saw Feist's "1234".
