Whilst stuck within the darkness that comes when enthusiasts change into strangers, singer Winona Oak casts her eyes to the ‘Island of the Solar’ in her new track and to a time when ‘the whole lot’s non violent and easy.’
There’s slightly any mild within the sky firstly of Winona Oak’s “Island of the Sun.” Within the video for the name monitor of the Swedish singer’s drawing close debut album, Winona stands a few of the snow-covered lands of her house. Whilst the sector round her is sour and unforgiving, it pales compared to the frigid panorama within her middle. “When used to be the sunshine changed? / Now it’s all ice in rain,” she sings. “I used to grasp your face like 2d nature / When did the darkness come.”
Regardless of the sub-zero temperatures within the video, there’s heat at the monitor. Winona’s voice comes thru just like the glad kiss of the emerging solar after a apparently never-ending evening. “Island of the Sun,” in each track and video, displays why Winona has earned the sort of unswerving following: it’s a melding of her electrifying tackle pop track, her charming artist imaginative and prescient in the case of her presentation, and maximum of all, her earnest method to songwriting.
“ ‘Island of the solar’ used to be created on a sunny night in Los Angeles along side Chris Lyon, Kate Morgan, Nate Campany, and Kyle Shearer,” Winona stocks with HollywoodLife “Like virtually at all times after I create track, I began the consultation with ingesting (lots of) espresso and speaking about existence for hours. I will’t describe in phrases how therapeutic it’s to jot down songs for me and the way grateful I’m for the entire superb folks that I am getting to name my buddies and co-writers.”
“In this particular night when ‘Island of the solar” used to be born, I used to be going thru a truly tricky time and felt extra homesick than ever,” continues Winona. “I sought after the island the place I grew up, 5360 miles from LA, to constitute a contented position inside myself or in a courting. Solens ö, in the course of the Nordic forests of Sweden – often referred to as ‘island of the solar,’ works as a metaphor for a spot the place the whole lot’s non violent and easy. Like that point on your formative years when the sector is best as large and wonderful as you are making it, you already know as we get older we generally tend to complicate issues. This track represents a bittersweet craving for a spot we pain to move once more. I’m hoping you’ll find it irresistible up to I do.”
