Goth Babe – “The Hills” // Art: Julieta XLF

Goth Babe is a seamless music project with a focus on creating down-to-earth acoustic songs. The artist’s most recent release, “The Hills” is a really great example. This particular project is actually a stunning acoustic ballad with a rather upbeat feel and a very emotional set of lyrics. The song’s slightly lo-fi production aesthetics make me think of artists such as earlier Bon Iver, The Tallest Man on Earth or Bright Eyes, creating stunning textures with cool ambient sounds, gritty drum arrangements and essentialist guitar arrangements that really serve the nature of the music without unnecessary frills.
