Pet Town is the second album by Amsterdam, Netherlands psych pop singer-songwriter Eerie Wanda. Graceful part folk, part psych pop compositions with lovely vocals and interesting electro-acoustic instrumentation.
Something else from the press release:
Eerie Wanda is the brainchild of audio and visual artist Marina Tadic. Born to Croatian parents in the former Yugoslavia, Marina became a political refugee when she was just 6 years old. Forced to leave their home due to the Bosnian war, Marina’s parents sought asylum in the Netherlands - which is where Marina grew into an adult, became an accomplished artist, and where she still resides.
Her second LP, Pet Town is an exercise in isolated creativity. Using minimal recording techniques, Tadic shapes these ten songs from sheer intuition, while drawing inspiration from solitude.
RIYL: Hand Habits, Sonny Smith, Haley Heynderickx, Ana D, and Cléa Vincent.
