If you’re searching for a playlist this winter that feels seasonal – brings warmth, calm, togetherness – but that doesn’t quite line up with the big-band, vocal-driven feel of the majority of releases, Winter Romance is easily worth a look.
The unexpectedly haunting new single from Pauline Frechette. This dark or deeply reflective jazz aura emerges, alongside of which Pauline’s emotional performance seeks to captivate & hypnotize listeners.
The story told by these notes & the varying levels of emotion beautifully highlights the feeling of this peaceful, thoughtful, reflective walk in the snow.
All at once distant & intimate. The artist’s vocal performance is gentler here than on previous recordings, though it always has a captivating softness.
The title suggests a devotion, and the music explores the feelings, the concept, and hints at the possibilities as to what the song truly represents.
The song has a captivating delicacy, expressed almost as a whisper, with lyrics that consistently light up the concept & this feeling of quiet & calm.
There’s an honesty about the song that is often more associated with folk music. The instrumentation is creatively interesting & appealing.
