New York’s Girl As Wave follows her previous singles, ‘Speed of Light’ and ‘Polaroid’, with new one, ‘Houdini’, as she steadily builds a rep as a reliable source of wonderful dream-pop, piece by piece.
‘Houdini’ is mellow, calm and dreamy, imbued with a dose of sentimentality that lures you in, merging perfectly alongside the wonderful songcraft. It is a multifaceted sound, encompassing a fusion of subtle influences from Americana and Country & Western – a la the elegant of reverb – to a dreampop aesthetic and spooky, cinematic quality, led by the haunting vocals. In short, ‘Houdini’ is marvelous and so easy to fall in love with – the most creative single Girl As Wave has come up with yet.
