“Touring Gentle” is a wonderful, densely atmospheric dream-pop debut single from Anita Ramona, a Romanian artist primarily based in Timisoara. Following years of labor in style design, images, styling, and illustration, the artist started to pursue a lifelong ardour for music. The result’s a convincing success. “Touring Gentle” exhibits Anita Ramona’s vocals as concurrently ethereal and haunting, seamlessly shifting from ghostly nonchalance to extra emotive ascension. The murky accompanying soundscape captivates, with shifting percussion and eerie, spacey synths assuming a continuing presence. The extra twinkling twist at 02:23 performs particularly nicely, reminding tonally of Lykke Li.
“Touring Gentle” is a totally spectacular debut from Anita Ramona.
