Winnipeg-based indie pop artist Rayannah has released her new music video ahead of eastern Canadian tour dates this spring.
Boxcar Lullabies is her debut EP, just one of five originals to be released on May 7. The video was shot by Winnipeg filmmaker Jonathan Stanners.
Boxcar Lullabies is a forthright showcase of the mastery of Rayannah’s looped and layered voice — only this time, combined with the indelible sounds of delicate strings, distorted whispers, pulled-apart pianos, passing trains, and a choir of double basses. The result is a supremely unique work that is at once familiar and foreign, each song of its five songs a world of its own.
Before hitting the road, Rayannah will play for a local audience at the West End Cultural Centre on May 7 with special guest ATLAAS.
Tickets are $20 at the door or $15 in advance at the Winnipeg Folk Festival Music Store, Music Trader, the WECC or online at Ticketfly.com.
