An intriguing and heartbreakingly atmospheric listen

Brooding and slightly offbeat singer/songwriters are not in themselves unique, but there is something very special about Zohara's new track 'Lost'

From Tel Aviv and London, Zohara has recorded a bedroom album of songs, and while I wasn't bothered about the earlier track, 'Bass and Drum' I do find 'Lost' to be gorgeously bleak and beautiful.

She's been compared to both Bjork and Stina Nordenstam, but she reminds me more of Regina Spektor if anything. Regina Spektor with a virtual orchestra on her laptop. Have a listen, 'Lost' is well worth five minutes of anyones time.
