Ear catching. Notice taking. Information digging. This is what happened, in that order, when I opened up an e-mail containing a Soundcloud link to “No, I Can’t” and gave it a listen. At it’s core it is a bit of a whimsical pop tune, but without a lot of the usual enablers that accompany this kind of track. It has a touch of regret, a hint of sorrow, and a dash of antagonism.
I’ll be honest, the finger snaps alone would have probably sold me on this piece. I’m a sucker for it.
Fortunately for all of us, though, Pebaluna delivers an amazingly well rounded offering that is anchored by a voice that seems both world weary and innocent simultaneously.
Pebaluna can be found via Facebook and they will be releasing their debut Carny Life on September 18th.
