Emiliana Torrini: A Clever One
When I first heard Emiliana Torrini, with a smirk on my face, I thought to myself “Okay, you’re pretty clever.”
Jungle Drum was her first track that really drew me in. Also drawing my attention were ‘sunny road’ and ‘if you go away’. Sunny Road is a sweet song (though not sickly sweet). If You Go Away, in contrast, is one seriously sad and dismal song (though worth a listen).
Clever, quirky and heartfelt. If I was asked to describe Torrini in three words I would use those.

Off the Box,
p.s. Props to Babs for turning me onto her.
