Blanco White – “Olalla” // Art: Maria Svarbova

Blanco White is a singer and songwriter whose style is very sunny and warm, making for a very nostalgic, yet hopeful style. His most recent single “Olalla” is a little electro-acoustic gem with a beautiful strummed riff at the heart of the arrangement, along with the singer’s stunning vocals. Blanco almost makes me think of the great Harry Belafonte, with a voice that feels timeless and direct. In addition to that, the backdrop of cool electronic percussion and electric guitars with a lush, reverberated tone really add something special to this track.
