Drawing inspiration from the Greek noun meaning ‘a new way of seeing’, she offers a combination of previously unreleased songs and reinvented older tracks, several remixed by other producers and collaborators. The result is a unique and emotive collection, rich in nuance and memorable throughout. Americana, ambient and folk influences fuse together in a bold tapestry, along with several more intimate ballads showcasing Yvonne’s strengths as an evolving artist.
