“Occasional visitors to Norwich, Dutch band Labasheeda have just released a new EP of unplugged acoustic tracks. Anyone who saw their mesmerising appearence at OPEN last year will be intrigued to hear these pared down tracks, recorded without drums.
Lead track The Snow is Falling features only Saskia’s vocals, acoustic guitar and melodica and is somewhat haunting and sombre.
The haunting mood continues throughout the EP and I think would appeal to fans of Daisy Victoria, as it reminded me a little of her in places, albeit in an acoustic style. Plucked violin strings and aching vocals, it’s an impressive collection.”
