THE BIG NEU THING
Johanna Glaza - Gravity Of Your Face


London songwriter Johanna Glaza’s debut EP is filled to the brim with stirring, explorative works. They’re complex beings; swimming around in different directions rather than floating in a happy stream. ‘Gravity of Your Face’ is arguably the most emotionally fraught track on ‘Silence Is Kind’. It’s a meeting ground between the bold bellows of Zola Jesus and the choral hum of Sigur Ros, making for something terrifyingly touching.

In fact, 17 year old Tim Bettinson does things a little differently. His words are clearer than ol’ Vernon’s.
